Kelp farming: a great opportunity for northern Norway and the world

As kelp aquaculture is a relatively new industry in Norway, and in many parts of Europe, there are many challenges to overcome before production can increase and become commercially viable. Active cultivation sites in Norway are scarce and concentrated towards the southern and mid-coastal regions; however, kelp farming also shows great potential in northern Norway. Therefore, researchers at Nofima are currently focusing on sustainable value creation from kelp production in northern Norway.
