R&D – meetings

We aim to connect people, knowledge, and companies. Research and development meetings are an interdisciplinary meeting place where we gather relevant experts and researchers to discuss different subjects.

Meetings in 2022

This year we have had two R&D-meetings so far.

1. Novel feed ingredients

Novel feed ingredients was on the agenda on the first meeting. The goal of the meeting was to get an overview on the existing development within novel feed ingredients to aquaculture, and it was decided to make a report on the matter. Thus, the R&D-meeting resulted in our first industry insight report called “Future ingredients for Norwegian salmon feed”.

2. Melanin spots in salmon fillet

On the second meeting we gathered representatives from the whole value chain to discuss melanin spots in salmon filet. It is a significant issue because it affects both fish welfare and economy. Read more about it here.


3. Offshore kelp farming

December 13th we had a R&D-meeting about offshore kelp farming. It is a growing industry with an enormous potential, but as always, new industries meet a lot of challenges. Check it out here.
