Secondary objectives: The programme will fund both basic research and applied research activities in order to:
● Generate knowledge for promoting social acceptance for and good governance in aquaculture ;
● Generate knowledge for developing sustainable methods to improve fish health;
● Develop a fundamental understanding of the lifecycle and biology of salmon to ensure reliable production;
● Cultivate knowledge for developing solutions and technology for sustainable production;
● Cultivate knowledge for developing and utilizing safe, globally sustainable raw ingredients for fish feed;
● Generate knowledge for increasing new marine bio-production;
● Generate fundamental knowledge for genetic improvement of aquatic organisms.

Target groups:
