FHF project "Effects of legal frameworks in aquaculture - regulatory simplification" aims to examine how scientific knowledge and policy objectives have laid the basis for decision, design and practice of current aquaculture regulations. In the first stage we made studies of existing literature. This resulted in an analysis that is documented in Nofima report 29-2015. In the project's second stage we had a different approach, focusing on the sectoral authority system and regulatory practice. We conducted nationwide qualitative interviews with sectoral authority bodies and industry. An extensive qualitative material was analyzed and reported in Nofima report 37-2016. A brochure showing the approach and recommendations can be found at
