Food from the Ocean

Ocean Sustainability Bergen wants to provide research-based knowledge on the future for food from the Ocean.

The health of the Ocean and human health are closely interconnected. Various human activities, pollution and climate change impact the well-being of the Ocean. The Ocean is of vital importance for our access to food and clean air. With the establishment of Ocean Sustainability Bergen, the University of Bergen (UiB) wants to provide research-based knowledge on the future for food from the Ocean as part of our engagement with the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

At UiB the research and education on food from the Ocean cuts across disciplines. Building on the position as Norway's premier SDG-oriented university, UiB wants to be at the forefront of how to provide more sustainable food from the Ocean while preserving important ecosystem services such as ocean uptake of CO2, mitigation and adaptation to climate change.
