The HAVBRUK programme is dedicated to aquaculture research, but the programme can only provide grants to a limited number of the projects for which funding is sought.
“Fortunately there are several other Research Council programmes that grant funding to projects important for Norway’s aquaculture industry,” writes Sigve Nordrum, chair of the HAVBRUK programme board, in the programme’s latest newsletter (“Nytt fra HAVBRUK” no. 3-4/2009). “And it is this cohesive effort that helps to uphold the dynamic position of Norwegian aquaculture research.”
Diversity and breadth
In addition to results from the HAVBRUK programme, the newsletter’s articles present findings from research conducted under the FUGE, HAVKYST, NATUROGNÆRING, Food, and MAROFF programmes. The newsletter spans the entire value chain – with topics as diverse as feed ingredients and large-scale production, shelf life and refrigeration methods, and trade agreements and consumer preferences.
Articles available in English
The printed version of the newsletter is available in Norwegian only. The following articles have been translated and are published on the HAVBRUK website:
