In SalmoE2, we aim to test whether ethyl ester (EE) oil can be used as a safe source of nutritionally beneficial fatty acids in the feed for salmon and trout.
FHF – Norwegian Seafood Research Fund
FATE targets the engagement of young consumers with sustainable food systems, in collaboration with high school canteens that are about to change their offers to more organic and local produce.
Norwegian Research Council NFR
In the project titled 'Urea in Farmed Salmon Feed for Enhanced Fish Welfare,' our aim is to explore the potential benefits of incorporating urea as an additive into farmed salmon feed.
The main goal of the project is to improve francisellosis resistance in Atlantic cod through a comprehensive assessment of the underlying genetic, physiological, and immunological mechanisms determining resistance to francisellosis.

Nofima will deliver three annual impact analysis reports of the seafood industry. The main analysis will give an overall picture of the entire seafood industry, while the other two will provide a detailed focus on the aquaculture and wild fish industries.
Our mission is to support marine innovators, entrepreneurs, and other pioneers in the Atlantic and Arctic Sea basin in transitioning towards the use of community-driven sustainable business models for regenerative ocean farming.
In this project we will investigate the interaction between cetoleic acid from fish oil and reduced development of psoriasis using in vitro cell models.
We are aiming to develop a method for sequential extraction of bioactive molecules from rockweed to ensure the maximum utilization of the seaweed.
The overarching objective of AlgaeProBANOS is to demonstrate market accessibility and the presence of sustainable and innovative algae products and solutions from 6 different pilots in the Baltic and North Seas.
Horizon Europe (project number 101112943)
The project aims to develop new and recyclable food packaging based on recycled cellulose fibers and removable barriers, so that these two parts can be sorted separately and recycled. The new solutions will enable the use of recycled cellulose fibers for high-quality packaging applications in contact with food without compromising their next recycling.
Research Council of Norway
The new EU project GUARDIANS aims to strengthen the competitiveness of small and medium-sized farms using relevant digital technologies. The project will test innovative digital technologies through pilot projects with small and medium-sized farms in Sweden, Italy, Spain and the Czech Republic. The test farms have various productions from feed and meat to honey and fruit.
The increase in low trophic aquaculture (LTA) production is a way to contribute to the sustainability goals that Norway has as part of its national aquaculture plan.
In this project, we investigate how and to what extent the state of rigor mortis affects frozen raw materials.
This study investigates how the natural microbiome of Atlantic salmon may be used to enhance fish performance and welfare.
The overarching aim of PathoRAS is to ensure top-notch biosecurity measures in Atlantic salmon RAS through a better understanding of how pathogens proliferate, establish, and survive in the complex ecosystem of the RAS environment.
One of the biggest threats to sustained food production is climate change. ArctiCod aims at understanding the general impact of different climate scenarios upon cod-farming in the Arctic, and the specific interactions between climate related stressors on biological responses in cod.
Troms og Finnmark County Municipality
The overall objective of this project is to promote value creation, including ecosystem services, and a further expansion of the seaweed industry in Europe.
SeaSoil is funded through the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation program (ERA-NET BlueBio cofund Grant No. 817992) and through the SeaSoil project funded by The Research Council of Norway (Grant No. 339232).
The main goal of this project is to test whether rlumpfish, either as a coating on dry crab food or as raw (frozen) food, can increase appetite and feed intake in juvenile king crabs and thus lead to an increased degree of meat content and value of the king crabs.
This is a small selection of the more than 600 projects Nofima is involved in at any given time.
