Large-scale Programme for Aquaculture Research (HAVBRUK2)

The primary objective of the Large-scale Programme for Aquaculture Research (HAVBRUK2) is to generate knowledge and solutions for socially, economically and environmentally sustainable growth in the Norwegian aquaculture industry.   

Secondary objectives

The programme will fund both basic research and applied research activities in order to:

  • Generate knowledge for promoting social acceptance for and good governance in aquaculture ;
  • Generate knowledge for developing sustainable methods to improve fish health;
  • Develop a fundamental understanding of the lifecycle and biology of salmon to ensure reliable production;
  • Cultivate knowledge for developing solutions and technology for sustainable production;
  • Cultivate knowledge for developing and utilising safe, globally sustainable raw ingredients for fish feed;
  • Generate knowledge for increasing new marine bioproduction;
  • Generate fundamental knowledge for genetic improvement of aquatic organisms.

Target groups

  • Trade and industry, and business organisations;
  • Politicians and the public authorities;
  • The research community;
  • The general public and the media.

The HAVBRUK2 programme will be an important instrument in realising the Research Council’s efforts involving the bioeconomy. The programme has a clear industry focus and targets the entire aquaculture value chain to the market for processed products, where it shares an interface with the Research Programme on Sustainable Innovation in Food and Bio-based Industries (BIONAER).

The primary focus of the programme is on the value chain for salmonids, but it also encompasses catch-based aquaculture and live holding, sea ranching and production of other species, with a focus on species at lower trophic levels.
