Nofima uses marine biotechnology to be able to exploit all parts of fish and shellfish.
Far more of the raw material harvested from the sea can be utilised, and as such contribute to new products, new companies and enhanced profitability for coastal business communities. Better utilisation of the marine resources covers bioprocessing of by-products that are already available, as well as the utilisation of completely new marine species through marine bioprospecting.
Nofima Marin collaborates closely with companies, universities and university colleges, both nationally and internationally. This activity has formed the basis for the commercialisation of a host of products and the establishment of new companies. Topical product areas are foods, ingredients for food and feed, health foods, cosmetics and biomedical products.
It is Nofima's ambition to maintain a high international level within the field of marine biotechnology.
