Limitations of Ice Accretion on Offshore Aquaculture Facilities
Sea spray icing is a constant risk for fish farms operating in cold climates, such as on the Northern Norwegian coast, and there must therefore exist methods to reduce this risk. This thesis discusses the consequences of ice accretion to the traditional plastic circular fish cage design, and how the cage reacts under the pressure of added mass from sea spray icing. The prediction of sea spray icing events and sea spray icing rates is paramount for predicting the risk of large quantities of ice build-up that can be a danger to the cage and fish escaping. Multiple methods and models exist and are compared throughout this thesis. Feeding barges hold a particularly important role in the everyday operations of fish farming, and should not be neglected when sea spray icing events are at risk of occurring, possibly resulting in a loss of stability. Icing can also create difficulties to routine operations and dangers to workers.

Dyspriani, Polite (Master thesis; Mastergradsoppgave, 2007-05-29)Shrimp world production in the last few years has shown very high growth rates. It is marked by an increasing of production volume, and by shifting from capture to aquaculture fisheries within the production system. This has occurred mostly regarding to the brackish water pond. For some years, the government has had to face hard choices in order to ensure shrimp aquaculture developed sustainable. ...
Pettersen, Ingrid Marie; Aaknes, Vilde Synnøve (Master thesis; Mastergradsoppgave, 2023-05-15)I dag er verdikjeden for fisk og skalldyr bygget opp rundt utnyttelse av et fåtall arter som kan fanges i store volum og med høy markedsverdi. Bruk av lite eller ikke utnyttede marine ressurser kan være en bærekraftig tilnærming for å innfri fremtidige krav og etterspørsel til fiskekonsum. Rødspette (Pleuronectes platessa) er den viktigste flatfisken i volum og verdi i europeiske fiskerier. Både ...
Nolde Nielsen, Kåre (Doctoral thesis; Doktorgradsavhandling, 2008-11-21)What is the relationship between science and politics? What should it be? How are their respective roles conceived and acted out in practice? Should science and politics be clearly separated? How? Are there cases in which they can be usefully mixed? What cases are those, and are there some ways of mixing that are better than others? This project explores such questions by examining relationships ...
