"The Oceans and the Coastal Areas" is a coordinating marine research programme.
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.
The seawater in the Baltic Sea, the North Sea, and Norway’s coastal waters and fjords is gradually getting darker. Researchers are observing signs similar to those from overproduction of organic compounds. The result may be fewer marine areas with fish, and more jellyfish.
Norwegian researchers are putting the finishing touches on a new echo sounder that provides far more information than previous versions ever could – making it much easier to identify fish and zooplankton.
