Area use and movement patterns of wild and escaped farmed Atlantic salmon before and during spawning in a large Norwegian river
(Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2016-02-02)
We compared the within-river movements and distribution of wild and escaped farmed Atlantic salmon Salmo salar before and during spawning in the Namsen river system of Central Norway. A total of 74 wild and 43 escaped farmed salmon were captured at sea, tagged with radio transmitters and released. Based on our examinations, most, if not all salmon (farmed and wild) entering the River Namsen were ...
Recovery and properties of oil from the copepod Calanus finmarchicus
(Doctoral thesis; Doktorgradsavhandling, 2016-01-29)
The limited amount of fish oils available has led to extensive search for alternative sources of oils rich in health beneficial long-chain polyunsaturated ω-3 fatty acids. The zooplankton Calanus finmarchicus, also known as redfeed, is present in large amounts in the North Atlantic and has lipid-rich stages, which can be harvested. One of the main objectives of this study was to investigate if the ...

Brucella pinnipedialis in hooded seal (Cystophora cristata) primary epithelial cells
(Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2016-01-25)
Background: Marine Brucella spp. have been isolated from numerous pinniped and cetacean species, but pathological findings in association with infection with Brucella pinnipedialis in pinnipeds have been sparse. The capacity of brucellae to survive and replicate within host macrophages underlies their important ability to produce chronic infections, but previous work has shown that B. pinnipedialis ...
Health and environmental risk evaluation of microorganisms used in bioremediation. Scientific Opinion of the Panel on Microbial Ecology of the Norwegian Scientific Committee for Food Safety
(Research report; Forskningsrapport, 2016)
In 2015, The Norwegian Environment Agency requested the Norwegian Scientific Committee for Food Safety (VKM) to collate an overview of bioremediation of polluted ground based on bioaugmentation described in literature for the degradation of various types of pollutants, (including hydrocarbons, heavy metals, chlorinated compounds, explosives etc.).The assessment of genetically modified microorganisms ...
Hyperbenthic Food-Web Structure in Kongsfjord: A Two-Season Comparison using Stable Isotopes and Fatty Acids.
(Master thesis; Mastergradsoppgave, 2016-04-21)
Current knowledge of the Arctic marine ecosystem is based primarily on studies performed during the polar day on the pelagic and benthic realms. Both the polar night and the hyperbenthic layer remain substantial knowledge gaps in the understanding of the marine system at high latitudes. To help address these knowledge gaps, this project investigates the hyperbenthic food web structure in Kongsfjord, ...
Agile project management. A case study on agile practices
(Master thesis; Mastergradsoppgave, 2016-02-12)
In project management and particularly software project management, there has been a shift from traditional plan based project management to the agile event driven project management style. Agile project management has for some time been viewed as the new big change that will revolutionize the software industry. The concept of agile has been around for some time, and although knowledge and usage ...
Sampling strategies, distribution and concentration of planktonic salmon lice copepods in the Outer Hardangerfjord and the Altafjord
(Master thesis; Mastergradsoppgave, 2016-08-15)
Salmon lice are parasitic copepods with three planktonic larvae stages, consisting of two nauplii stages and a copepodite stage. The parasite spread during these stages as plankton, and with the increased number of host represented by salmonid fish in aquaculture it is important to know the concentrations and ecology of the fee-living stages. Both Lepeophtheirus salmonis and Caligus elongatus are ...
Fiskeridirektøren bør flyttes til Tromsø
(Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel, 2016-11-17)
Fiskeridirektøren og det tilknyttede reguleringsutvalget og forvaltningsorganene flyttes fra Bergen til Tromsø, i det minste den delen som angår forvaltningen av ressursene utenfor Nord Norge, foreslår artikkelforfatterne.
