Trip to Lerøy Norway Seafoods in Båtsfjord

Researchers and students from #SINTEF Ocean and# NTNU visited #Lerøy Norway Seafoods in Båtsfjord to understand the production planning systems and procedures used by the company. Through several master student and post-doc projects, different models and tools to support the current production planning practices will be developed for this highly complex planning environment.

Smart frysing og tining gir fersk torsk heile året

Måten ein frys og tinar torsken på har alt å seie for kvaliteten på produktet. Kontrollert frysing og tining av torsk gir forbrukarane eit produkt som kan måle seg med fersk fisk heile året. Dette har vore eitt viktig fokus i #QualiFish, og resultat frå denne forskinga kan lesast i saken under.

Presenting results from the trawling experiments

In the end of August, we got to present the results from our research done on board the trawler “Molnes” to the crew, and other employees at Nordic Wildfish at Valderøya. It was a dynamic and fun presentation with many good discussions. The report is now available at SINTEFs web page, or from here Report Molnes.

Studenter i QualiFish

Last week the logistic team from Norwegian University of Science and Technology and Sintef Ocean working together in the projects #QualiFish and #IProcess had a joint meeting informing students writing project thesis, master thesis, PhD and post docs about the projects and the Norwegian whitefish industry.

QualiFish at World Seafood Congress 2017 Iceland

In the middle of September several of the #QualiFish researchers attended the World Seafood Congress (WSC) 2017 in Reykjavik. The focus of WSC 2017 was growth in the Blue-Bioeconomy, practical approach and cutting edge research for market innovation, food safety and food integrity. Three presentations were given from the project as well as two posters covering everything from quality and safety of thawed cod, to differences in information sharing and feedback between fishing vessels and producers between Iceland and Norway.

QualiFish Film

A short film about the project and some of the results have been summed up in a short QualiFish movie. The movie has been presented at the World Seafood Congress in Iceland, as well as being precented to industrial partners in the #QualiFish project, and will also be presented during theis years WEFTA in Dublin.

Forskningstokt om bord på tråleren Molnes

I April var tre av SINTEF Ocean sine forskere om bord på tråleren “Molnes” fra Nordic Wildfish i ti dager. De gikk ut fra Tromsø til Tromsøflaket og Fuglebanken.

Målsettingen med studien i #QualiFish prosjektet, var å evaluere slaktelinjen om bord på M/Tr Molnes ved å studere overlevelse, stressnivå og filetkvalitet på torsk og hyse. Sei skulle også inkluderes i forsøket, men pga. dårlig seifiske utgikk denne arten.

QualiFish day 2016

Den tredje QualiFish dagen i rekken ble avholdt ved Britannia Hotell i Trondheim tirsdag 19 April i år. Dagen inneholdt presentasjoner fra industri, utstyrsleverandører og forskere og var en dag med godt engasjement og åpne diskusjoner rundt forskingsresultater og utfordringer i næringen.

 

P1010797k

 

Hvert år avholdes QualiFish dagen for å sikre god formidling av forskningen til prosjektdeltakerne og andre interessenter, samt å opprettholde en god dialog mellom industrien, utstyrsleverandørene, de ulike forskningsinstitusjonene og andre partnere i prosjektet.

 

Nedenfor finnes de tilgjengelige presentasjonene fra dagen.

Better fish welfare means better quality

The sustainable harvesting of wild fish is one of the most important challenges facing the global population in its efforts to obtain adequate fish volumes. There is a huge potential for improvement in the field of fish harvesting efficiency. The DANTEQ project has resulted in the development of new skills and methods for optimizing fish handling onboard vessels in relation to raw materials quality and energy efficiency.

More gentle methods of catching and gutting fish on trawlers will benefit the fish, the environment and the bottom line.
