Leading research groups in Norway are collaborating on five knowledge platforms to solve the greatest challenges to further development of the aquaculture industry.

The knowledge platforms under the HAVBRUK programme of the Research Council of Norway are large-scale research projects in areas of strategic importance. The platforms receive more funding and have a longer duration than many other research projects, and they play a national coordinating role within their respective scientific area.

Escapes
SINTEF Fisheries and Aquaculture heads the SECURE knowledge platform (Securing fish-farming technology and operations to reduce escapes), which has identified causes of escape from aquaculture facilities, among other things. The knowledge supplied by the platform is being applied to develop more secure facilities.

Wild salmon

The Norwegian Institute for Nature Research (NINA) heads QuantEscape, a research project studying the genetic interaction between wild and farmed salmon. The most recently established HAVBRUK knowledge platform, QuantEscape is documenting how escapes from aquaculture facilities affect wild salmon populations.

Sea lice
The Institute of Marine Research heads the PrevenT platform (Salmon louse – prevention and treatment), which has carried out extensive basic research on sea lice. The knowledge base compiled will provide a basis for the development of a vaccine against the parasite.

Viral vaccines
The Norwegian Veterinary Institute heads the Platform for Viral Aquamedicine. Basic research supports the hope that vaccines can also be found to fight viral disease.

Cod
The University of Bergen (UiB) heads the CODE knowledge platform (Cod Development). Although the platform focuses on cod, it also generates knowledge of importance to understanding development in other marine species.
