Conference: “More Food from the Oceans. Blue is the New Green”

The ocean is expected to be a part of the solution to the climatic challenges caused by the human population. An increased use of the oceans for production of food, renewable energy, transportation, and carbon storage represents important positive contributions. Only 2 percent of our food calories today originates from the oceans. Therefore, there is a potential for increased use of the oceans.

” More Food from the Oceans. Blue is the New Green ” will put a global perspective to food production, both as supplier for an increasing world population, and the positive effects on our climatic challenges by moving more protein production from land to sea.
Here you can meet people from industries, FAO, EU, national authorities and academia.

Sessions
By setting up specialised sessions in exposed aquaculture, land based aquaculture, feed resources and nutrition, food processing and engineering and enabling technology for aquaculture, covering the whole aquaculture value chain, speakers from industry and academia will present “state of art” under the different topics.

Arranged by The Nor-Fishing Foundation, SINTEF and NTNU
By arranging the conference “More Food from the Oceans. Blue is the New Green” during Aqua Nor 2021, The Nor-Fishing Foundation, SINTEF and NTNU wish to focus upon the technological possibilities and challenges we are facing to reach our goals.

The Aqua Nor exhibition represents the world largest technological window towards the aquaculture sector, while SINTEF and NTNU together form a global centre of gravity for marine science, technology, and engineering. It is based upon this that The Nor-Fishing Foundation, SINTEF and NTNU hereby invite you to a scientific program during this year`s exhibition. The program will be updated continually.
