Quality at all stages
Nofima Marin is the second largest partner in the project and is leading the aquaculture and product quality part of the programme. They are involved in 8 of the 20 sub-projects and are responsible for looking at the ethical production of farmed fish, consumer surveys, seafood quality and traceable information about where and how the product was produced.
Shelf life and rancidity
Nofima Mat is involved in "Lipidtext", one of the 20 sub-projects. The aim of Lipidtext is to find causes of rancidity (lipid oxidation) and soft texture in seafood, as well as slowing down the development of rancidity. To this end, models have been developed for pH, temperature and chemical parameters and Nofima Mat's competence is being principally applied to the design of trails and data analysis. One of the conclusions we have reached is that temperature is an important factor in rancidity.
