Fisheries management, technology, and biology (BRIDGE)

The research group BRIDGE carries out research within the following main areas:
• Fisheries / living marine resources management
• Fisheries biology
• Marine ecology and oceanography
• Technology

The goal of BRIDGE is to provide education and research of high quality in order to advance the level of knowledge in areas that are important for addressing societal challenges that are connected to fisheries management.

BRIDGE comprises long experience with carrying out research and education tasks in a highly multidisciplinary and interdisciplinary environment. The members of the group have a shared interest in the management of living marine resources. They also share responsibility for students and course portfolios, and are actively engaged in enhancing teaching and learning activities at the university.

The research group engages in extensive internal cooperation with other research groups at the faculty and at the UiT as well as in international cooperation (notably through participation in multinational EU research projects). Each group member has a considerable research network nationally and internationally.
