Seafood and Feed Resources - Ocean to Oven

The use of low-trophic marine resources (like macroalgae, mussels and algae-eating fish) and other less harvested marine resources like mesopelagic organisms, either directly as food or as a feed ingredient in aquaculture, needs further development to become a larger contributor towards food production. This project will help generate basic knowledge needed to utilise such novel marine resources as food or feed in a sustainable way.

We have changed our name! We are now the Integrated Marine Biosphere Research project (IMBeR), and we have a new logo to reflect this. The three waves represent the link between the open ocean and the land, while the encompassing circle depicts humans who impact but are also impacted by the ocean.



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.
