    Hvas, Malthe; Kolarevic, Jelena; Noble, Christopher; Oppedal, Frode; Stien, Lars Helge (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2024-02-20)
    Periods of fasting occur for a multitude of reasons in Atlantic salmon aquaculture. Feed withdrawal is widely used prior to transport, parasite treatments, preslaughter and for depuration purposes in recirculating aquaculture systems. Voluntary fasting is a coping response when fish have poor health or are exposed to poor farm environments. Owing to increased attention to animal welfare in aquaculture, ...
  • A Novel Biosurfactant-Based Oil Spill Response Dispersant for Efficient Application under Temperate and Arctic Conditions 

    Farooq, Umer; Szczybelski Ciordia, Ariadna Sabina; Ferreira, Frederico Castelo; Faria, Nuno Torres; Netzer, Roman (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2024-02-15)
    Synthetic oil spill dispersants have become essential in offshore oil spill response strategies. However, their use raises significant concerns regarding toxicity to phyto- and zooplankton and other marine organisms, especially in isolated and vulnerable areas such as the Arctic and shorelines. Sustainable alternatives may be developed by replacing the major active components of commercial dispersants ...
  • Overskudd og ressursrente -mer for Nord-Norge? 

    Flaaten, Ola; Heen, Eirik Eriksen; Heen, Knut (Chapter; Bokkapittel, 2023)
    Artikkelen beskriver utviklingen i fiskeri- og havbruksnæringen i Nord-Norge, med spesiell vekt på Finnmark og Nord-Troms. Norsk økonomisk sone har her det biologiske grunnlaget for landets viktigste fiskerier. Fiskeriene har gått fra å være en åpen næring til en lukket og eksklusiv «klubb». Konsekvensene for næringen i Nord-Norge har vært sentralisering i færre enheter og svekking av mange lokalsamfunn. ...

    Marine plastic pollution and continuous capture of marine animals, so-called “ghost fishing”, by abandoned, lost, or otherwise discarded fishing gear (ALDFG) are global concerns. This study investigated whether biodegradable polylactic acid (PLA) monofilaments can be used to replace conventionally used non-biodegradable polyamide (PA) in trammel net fishery for limiting ALDFG associated effects. It ...
  • Sea, fish, and resource management in the High North 

    Hoel, Alf Håkon (Chapter; Bokkapittel, 2023)
    With more than five times the land area of the kingdom, Norway’s oceans extend from 55 degrees north in the North Sea to 85 degrees north in the Arctic Ocean north of Svalbard – a distance of more than 3,000 kilometres. More than 80 per cent of these sea areas lies to the north of the Arctic Circle. As for natural resources, these sea areas are very productive and sustain large commercial fisheries. ...
  • The gift of community 

    Jentoft, Svein (Book; Bok, 2023)
    This book is a followup, or a continuation rather, of the one I published in 2019 as part of the Too Big To Ignore (TBTI) Global Book Series, titled ‘Life Above Water: Essays on Human Experiences of Small-Scale Fisheries’. The design and purpose of the current book are the same. The introduction in the 2019 book could also work here, even if this book has a sharper focus on communities. Both consist ...

This study aims to address this gap by examining the spatio-temporal evolution ...
  • The Image Fallacy: Rethinking the Tragedy of the Commons 

    Jentoft, Svein (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2023-05-05)
    An image is what we have in our head and what we make up in an allegory, a name, a metaphor, a text, a map or in a drawing. None of these should be confused with the thing that is being imagined. They are not the real thing, just our imaginations of it. Still, we could not do without them, for instance when governing small-scale fisheries. They make us understand what we are up to and the track we ...

  • Adjusting the Fitting of Fluorescence-Based Dose-Response Kinase Inhibition Assay to Account for Fluorescent Inhibitors 

    Petit, Guillaume Axel (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2023-10-11)
    Fluorescence is routinely used to monitor kinase inhibition in commercial assays. Occasionally fluorescent compounds can interfere with the fluorescent reading. To address this issue, the problematic data are usually truncated to improve the fit, however, this approach raises ethical and reproducibility concerns. Instead, it is suggested to adjust the fitting formula, to account for the autofluorescence ...
  • Marine heatwaves are not a dominant driver of change in demersal fishes 

    Fredston, Alexa L.; Cheung, William W. L.; Frölicher, Thomas L.; Kitchel, Zoë J.; Maureaud, Aurore A.; Thorson, James T.; Auber, Arnaud; Mérigot, Bastien; Palacios-Abrantes, Juliano; Palomares, Maria Lourdes D.; Pecuchet, Laurene Anne Marie; Shackell, Nancy L.; Pinsky, Malin L. (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2023-08-30)
    Marine heatwaves have been linked to negative ecological effects in recent decades1,2. If marine heatwaves regularly induce community reorganization and biomass collapses in fishes, the consequences could be catastrophic for ecosystems, fisheries and human communities3,4. However, the extent to which marine heatwaves have negative impacts on fish biomass or community composition, or even whether ...
