Nor-Fishing 2014 has come to an end, and the QualiFish-team can look back at four eventful days in Trondheim. Project manager Hanne Digre started off on Tuesday with a mini-seminar at the Norwegian Research Council stand. Her presentation titled “Technology development from catch to processing for market adapted production of cod in Norway” was well received among the audience. On Thursday a productive meeting between vessels, processing industry, equipment suppliers and fishery organizations in the industry arena was conducted, discussing possible future contributions to the project. Additionally, employees from SINTEF and NIFES (The National Institute of Nutrition and Seafood Research) got the opportunity to visit the brand new fishing vessel MS “Grotle” (picture), one of the industry partners in the project. On the last day of Nor-Fishing the research partners gathered to make further plans related to case studies and research activities.
– The exhibition created the backdrop for several good meetings and discussions in the project, says project manager Hanne Digre.
14 547 visitors from 48 countries visited Nor-Fishing 2014 to see 450 exhibitors from 23 countries.
