Spotted wolffish have been a promising new marine species for farming since the 90s, and had an established production line supplying restaurant markets in the early 2000. However due to investment costs and unexpected losses the production of wolffish have been low until now.

Several companies are now investing in production of wolffish, and the need for R&D and adapted sustainable feeds for the species are requested.


Study effect of sustainable novel marine ingredient of digestion, growth and health in on-growing spotted wolffish, and advance knowledge about its intestinal anatomy and physiology.

How we work

Nofima will in collaboration with a Master student from UiT study intestinal anatomy and digestive physiology in on-growing spotted wolffish fed feeds with sustainable marine ingredients.
