The ten members of the Strategic Advisory Board are world-leading experts on aquaculture, fisheries and other relevant areas. The board will advise the IMR on its development, tasks and regulatory framework.
– They have generously shared their knowledge and experience with us. The meeting has provided us with useful suggestions and a fresh impetus for further work on the IMR’s strategic plan, says Sissel Rogne.
The meeting was held in suitably marine surroundings at the hotel Bekkjarvik Gjestgiveri. It was also possible to fit in a quick visit to the Austevoll research station. Back at Bekkjarvik, the board learned about the IMR and its role in monitoring, mapping and advising. Presentations were given by the management team and the heads of various research programmes and groups.
The Ministry of Trade, Industry and Fisheries has appointed the board, which will deliver an annual report to the Ministry and the IMR. Apart from the two Norwegian members Jarl Giske (University of Bergen) and Nils Christian Stenseth (University of Oslo), the board members come from the US, the Netherlands, Denmark, Italy, the UK and Germany. The committee is chaired by Poul Degnbol from Aalborg University in Denmark.
