Report on Risk assessment

The Institute of Marine Research has conducted an initial risk assessment  of the environmental effects of Norwegian Aquaculture for the Ministry of  Fisheries and Coastal Affairs. The assessment builds on goals specified in  the Ministry’s “Strategy for an Environmentally Sustainable Norwegian  Aquaculture Industry” from 2009.

We have focused on the environmental  goals for disease dispersal, genetic impact of escapees and the release of  nutrient salts, organic waste and drugs.
