This group works on methods and models for the collection of resource data, acoustics, observation platforms and technology and methods and protocols for the collection of relevant biological data (trawl sampling).
The Institute of Marine Research has expertise in the fields of underwater acoustics and fish-capture technology.
With limited resources available for new development, an important aspect of our strategy is to build alliances with other technology-based groups in order to ensure that new developments in the fields of petroleum- and defence-related subsea technology are exploited. Projects of this sort are also important as a means of stimulating recruitment in the field of technology for marine research purposes. For this reason, the Institute of Marine Research runs a wide range of projects in collaboration with several central technology partners.
