  • Balancing Agro-Fuels and Food Security on the Tightrope Towards Sustainability 

    Tafesework Geletu, Eden; Poto, Margherita Paola (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2019)
    The demand for the utilization of agricultural resources for non-food purposes, such as feedstock, has been on the rise globally in recent times. This article seeks to examine the underlying reasons behind the boom in agricultural crops for biofuel feedstock. Cognizant of this peak in demand, the article aims to show how the right to adequate food is being restrained by large-scale land acquisition ...
  • New approach for modelling size selectivity in shrimp trawl fisheries 

    Larsen, Roger B.; Herrmann, Bent; Sistiaga, Manu Berrondo; Brinkhof, Jesse; Tatone, Ivan; Langård, Lise (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2017-07-10)
    In the deep sea trawl fishery targeting shrimp (Pandalus borealis) and other cold-water shrimp species, fishers often use a Nordmöre sorting grid ahead of a small mesh codend to avoid bycatch. However, small fish can pass through the grid and are subsequently retained in the codend. This makes shrimp size selection complex and the size-dependent curve for both the shrimp and the bycatch species often ...
  • Spiritual Activism. Saving Mother Earth in Sápmi 

    Kraft, Siv Ellen (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2020-07-09)
    Arctic Shaman Circle was founded in Oslo in November 2018. This article discusses what the Circle’s founding document refers to as “spiritual activism”, and how this was translated into action over the year that followed. I will follow one case in particular, which concerns plans for a power plant at the base of the mountain Aahkansnjurhtjie in the South Sámi area. Aahkansnjurhtjie is a sacred Sámi ...
  • Measured sound levels in ice-covered shallow water caused by seismic shooting on top of and below floating ice, reviewed for possible impacts on true seals 

    Stemland, Helene Meling; Johansen, Tor Arne; Ruud, Bent Ole; Aniceto, Ana Sofia (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2019-01-01)
    Seismic surveying of the Arctic is important for several reasons, but also introduces some challenges. One is the concern that seismic data may affect the hearing of marine mammals living there, including true seals. We performed two seismic experiments on floating ice on Svalbard in the Norwegian Arctic in early March 2016 and late May 2017, just before and right after the ringed seal breeding ...

    Helse- og miljørisikovurderingen av den herbicidtolerante og insektsresistente maishybriden MON 89034 x 1507 x NK603 (EFSA/GMO/NL/2009/65) fra Monsanto og Dow AgroSciences LLC er utført av Faggruppe for genmodifiserte organismer i Vitenskapskomiteen for mattrygghet (VKM). Mattilsynet og Direktoratet for naturforvalting (DN) ber Vitenskapskomiteen for mattrygghet om å vurdere den genmodifiserte ...
