We conduct both basic research and commission-based research.
Akvaplan-niva is a research partner in various projects that work with the development and commercialisation of new production concepts (R&D and development permits), and is the owner of a research permit where the focus is on new production methods for Northern Norway.
Using various research methods, we map the effects of new farming methods on the fish’s physiology, performance and welfare.
Examples of new methods include:
- Post-smolt production and release strategies
- Semi-closed and closed salmon farming
- Exposed aquaculture
- Water improvement systems
