2_Exploring improvements in fisheries and aquaculture
The main objective is to study the prospects for future fish farming in Arctic Norway, Faroe Islands,
Iceland, Canada, Greenland, Arctic Russia and Alaska. We can model the world market for Arctic
salmon and implement options for new technologies developed to make the industry more sustainable.
This technology opens up for locating production in areas that so far have been unsuitable due to
unsuitable temperature or rough sea. Besides production in Arctic regions, we include non-arctic
competitors and their potential supply. As capacity for salmon production is increasing, the demand will
influence not only price as is currently the case due to capacity constraints, but also the volume. We
model demand as a function of income, price on salmon and competing food items and trend factors,
reflecting changes in health and lifestyle preferences. Model results will indicate to what extent and
where new technologies will be phased in by the industry.
CICERO is Norway’s foremost institute for interdisciplinary climate Research. We deliver new insight that help solve the climate challenge and strengthen international climate cooperation.
We help to solve the climate problem and strengthen international climate cooperation by predicting and responding to society’s climate challenges through research and dissemination of a high international standard. Our researchers collaborate with top researchers from around the world, and publish their work in recognized international journals, reports, books and periodicals.
CICERO has garnered particular attention for its research on the effects of manmade emissions on the climate, society’s response to climate change, and the formulation of international agreements. We have played an active role in the IPCC since 1992. In recent years we have also developed considerable expertise in climate financing.
CICERO has a national role in promoting knowledge about climate change and is internationally recognised as a driving force for innovative climate communication. We are in constant dialogue about the responses to climate change with public and private decision makers, government administration and civil society.
