The aim of this project is to establish pilot-scale production of fish gelatin from salmon fish scales and assess the suitability of the extracted gelatin for food packaging applications.
The aim of this project is to increase the utilisation of flatfish inside the fjord lines by further developing methods for Danish seine fishing, live storage and processing.

SeaMark aims to upscale circular ocean seaweed cultivation and land-based integrated multi-trophic aquaculture (IMTA) systems and develop novel processing methods involving fermentation and biotransformation into twelve innovative seaweed-based products.
Horizon Europe (EU)
This project investigates the consequences of the loss of MSC certificates for cod and haddock caught within 12 nautical miles of the coast.

This project investigates challenges related to animal welfare in fisheries in a world where both nature and technology are constantly changing.
The project aims to extract valuable components from the siphonophore "Portuguese man-of-war" (Physalia physalis) for use in the medical and cosmetic industry.
In this project, we will investigate the relationships between conditions for live storage (environment) and feeding (dry feed) of small king crabs through 1-3 shell changes and the quality of the product after processing.
AnimalFatPlus addresses challenges facing the meat industry: How to decrease the content of saturated fat in processed meat products without compromising sensory quality and how to utilize the excess animal fat to environmental friendly surfactants.
The Agricultural and Food Industry Research Funds
In this project, we will develop taste-neutral protein hydrolysates with high technical quality from poultry by-products that are suitable for human consumption
Traditionally, farmed salmon are transported to land to be slaughtered at a harvesting plant. The aim of this project is to increase knowledge about slaughtering fish on board boats and how it affects fish welfare, quality, process technology, business administration and societal effects.
The aim of this project is to shed light on the relationship that exists between feed ingredients, feed technology and sludge, and how this can help increase the utilisation of feed resources and also improve water quality in land-based facilities (RAS).
In this project we are exploring how new technologies can be adapted to improve the speed and accuracy of welfare assessments in aquaculture.
In this project we develop and test a handheld instrument for measuring the water content of clipfish.
The aim of the project is to learn about chefs' attitudes of farmed cod from Norway.
In GutFeedingNow we study the health implications of new plant-based ingredients and products based on Norwegian raw materials, with focus on protein digestibility and effects on the gut microbiota and gut health.
Forskningsmidlene for jordbruk og matindustri (FFL/JA)
Under our "Chicken Health" project we will be investigating the molecular mechanisms that cause some chickens to develop wooden breast syndrome.
The main objective is to map the incidence of dark spots in salmon fillets originating from the Norwegian salmon farming industry. In addition to general mapping, the project will also have a subsidiary objective of mapping the incidence in relation to where (geography) and how (technology) salmon is produced.
This is a small selection of the more than 600 projects Nofima is involved in at any given time.
