Towards the Digital Salmon: From a reactive to a pre-emptive research strategy in aquaculture (DigiSal)
Salmon farming in the future must navigate conflicting and shifting demands of sustainability, shifting feed prices, disease, and product quality. The industry needs to develop a flexible, integrated basis of knowledge for rapid response to new challenges. Project DigiSal will lay the foundations for a Digital Salmon: an ensemble of mathematical descriptions of salmon physiology, combining
DeepHyperSpec: Combining spectral and image information in the analysis of hyperspectral imaging data
Infrared microspectroscopic imaging is a new technique for rapid, label-free and automated diagnosis of various types of cancer. The technique is expected to enter clinical routine analysis in the years coming.
Centre for Environment-friendly Energy Research
Research in the past decade has shown that biomass conversion into energy fuels and other value added products, in contrast to traditional refineries, requires highly integrated versatile plants. In most cases, such plants will need to produce a portfolio of products that together secure economic sustainability. The Centre for Environment-friendly Energy Research aims to develop innovative technology and support industries to realize economic and
Bioconversion of low-cost fat materials into high-value PUFA-Carotenoid-rich biomass
The project aims at upgrading Norwegian animal slaughter fat by-products to high-value fatty acids by fungal fermentation processes.
This is a sandbox where DigiSal members can learn to use the SEEK.

The SEEK is a web interface to a database of research "assets" organised in a hierarchical "ISA structure" (investigation-study-assay) .
These are further organised into projects and programmes.
* Programme = Overarching research theme (The Digital Salmon)
* Project = Research grant (DigiSal, GenoSysFat)
* Investigation = a particular biological process, phenomenon or thing
Salmon farmed on modern feeds contains less of the healthy, long-chain fatty acids (EPA and DHA) than before. Up until the turn of the millennium, farmed salmon were fed fish oil as a replacement for their omega-3 rich natural prey. However, fish oil is now a scarce resource, and more than half of the fat in modern feeds comes from plant oils that are inexpensive, but devoid of long-chain omega-3 fatty acids. How can we increase the omega-3 content of salmon on sustainable feeds?
One option is
Coastal zones and oceans constitute an essential fundament for Norway’s history as well as current economy, providing ecosystem services for fisheries, aquaculture, transport, tourism, and recreation. The petroleum activities in Norwegian waters have been crucial for Norway’s financial growth and in financing the Norwegian welfare state. As the pressure on the oceans continuously increases, both the petroleum industry and the seafood industries have acknowledged that awareness and actions are
