NIVA Region West
NIVA Region West is located in Bergen.
At NIVA Region West we study and work with coastal possibilities and environmental challenges, including aquaculture, climate change and ocean acidification, blue growth through green restructuring, and sustainability.
The aquaculture industry as an actor in the coastal areas is central: clean food from the sea with reduced organic footprint, new sustainable production methods, new breeding species and new farming concepts.
- Algae monitoring and toxic algae alerts
- Water quality monitoring and optimalisation
- Localisation of aquaculture facilities and current measurements
- Dissemination and mentoring, e.g. at The University of Bergen and the EU-funded ResponSEAble-project
