Aquaculture – An Industry in Growth (HAVBRUK) is one of seven programmes under the Research Council’s Large-scale Programme initiative. The primary objective of the programme is to acquire knowledge to achieve economically, environmentally and socially sustainable growth in Norwegian aquaculture.
A recent report shows that Norwegian marine research plays a key role in international knowledge development. Norwegian marine researchers publish widely and are frequently cited.
Leading research groups in Norway are collaborating on five knowledge platforms to solve the greatest challenges to further development of the aquaculture industry.
Industry players and public administrators alike are anxiously awaiting the results of the intensive effort in the knowledge platform PrevenT to develop an effective vaccine against the dreaded sea louse.
