A broad spectrum of marine research

Research conducted at the Norwegian College of Fishery Science is concentrated around two main areas: marine resource management and marine biotechnology. This includes basic research and thematically directed research aimed at the industry, divided into six research groups.

Our research is conducted in close cooperation with the research environments of the faculty and the university, as well as other partners – both local, regional, national and international.

Research at the NCFS is carried out by permanent research staff, project researchers and PhD-students. Bachelor and master students are also involved at all levels of research.

EWMA2: Northern Environmental Management The main objective for the project is to develop a distinct Northern Norwegian competence cluster in waste handling in the Arctic oil industry and shipping. Through research and education, the project will build new knowledge on how to handle waste from this industry in a more proper manner in the high north region and cold environment.
