Food from Oceans: Sustainable, safe and nutritious
Organised by the University of Tromsø - The Arctic University of Norway and the Norwegian Institute of Marine Research

Arctic holds a range of treasures. One of many important roles of the Arctic is to contribute to seafood. Increased global availability and consumption of seafood may prevent hidden hunger, malnutrition and help combat non-communicable diseases. The potential of an increased seafood harvest may include lower trophic level, aquaculture, new marine resources to enhance the marine biomass in fish feed, etc. However, there are many other interests such as increased shipping, tourism, potential food safety issues and deep-sea mining that need to be considered in the same context. Thus, it is timely to start a discussion on how to increase the marine food production, including from the Arctic, at the same time as we preserve the integrity of the marine ecosystem.
