NOMACULTURE is an interdisciplinary research project that develops strategies for establishment of a sustainable Swedish marine aquaculture.

The project gathers experts in biology, technology, food science, Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) and economics in order to, using a transdisciplinary approach, rise to several of the key challenges involved in establishing a sustainable mariculture:

  • to reduce dependence on fish oil and fish meal for aqua-feed
  • to develop high quality larval feeds
  • to minimize nutrient leakage to the ocean
  • to promote a holistic approach to sustainable aquaculture also including the socio-economic aspect
  • to provide knowledge-based information and education to the public and stakeholders

The NOMACULTURE consortium also includes public and private stakeholders who support the long-term goals to establish proof-of-principle aquaculture farms and business plans for a feed company. This will ensure environmental and ecological sustainability of high-end products from marine aquaculture in harmony with the local communities.
