Active projects



Computer vision to expand monitoring and accelerate assessment of coastal fish (CoastVision)



CRIMAC will improve and automate the interpretation of data and images from modern broadband acoustics on research vessels and fishing boats by using cruises and experimental field research, artificial intelligence, drones and inspection technology. 



LoVeOcean is a national infrastructure project located outside Lofoten–Vesterålen. 

Lofoten–Vesterålen Marine Observatory (LoVe) will send continuous real-time data from a fixed area, which can eventually be used to create long time series. 


Seafood and Feed Resources – Ocean to Oven

The use of low-trophic marine resources (like macroalgae, mussels and algae-eating fish) and mesopelagic organisms. This project will help generate basic knowledge needed to utilise such novel marine resources as food or feed in a sustainable way.


Sustainable multi-species harvest from the Norwegian Sea and adjacent ecosystems

The project is at the core of production of knowledge-based advice for sustainable harvest and ecosystem-based management of living marine resources.

Fishery Forum

The Norwegian Fishery Forum for Development Cooperation is an informal forum for cooperation between Norwegian institutions involved in or with interests in projects with assistance to the fishery sector in developing countries. The Fishery Forum was established by Norad in 2003 and is headed by a group of representatives from some of the institutions involved.


ICES Working Group on the Integrated Assessments of the Barents Sea (WGIBAR)

WGIBAR conducts and develops integrated ecosystem assessments for the Barents Sea as part of the Ecosystem Approach to Fisheries Management.



MAREANO maps depth and topography, sediment composition, contaminants, biotopes and habitats in Norwegian waters. The results of the surveys are available on this website, visualised through maps. A number of our partners also supply data and maps from their own studies.



NorArgo2 is an observation system for the northern seas that consists of oceanographic battery powered floats, Argo floats.


The Norwegian Fish Nutrition Seminar

The Norwegian Fish Nutrition Seminar is a biennial event and is an arena for communicating recent advances in fish nutrition research and facilitate dialogue between stakeholders in science and practice of fish nutrition in Norway.
