The traffic light system for the Norwegian Salmonid aquaculture

In the summer of 2020, the Research Council was assigned the evaluation of the scientific basis for the traffic light system for the aquaculture industry.

The assignment came from the Ministry of Trade, Industry and Fisheries.

On this basis, we appointed an international committee that had its first meeting in December 2020.

The Committee has now submitted a memorandum with preliminary assessments and proposals for improvements in accordance with its mandate:

They will submit the final evaluation report in December 2021.

The committee is chaired by Crawford Revie – and consists of these members:
