Researchers have digitised shrimp landings data going almost right back to when the Norwegian shrimp fishery started around the turn of the 20th century.
Parts of the Lofoten–Vesterålen Ocean Observatory are operational and collecting new scientific data again after more than a year of downtime.
Data from the autopsy of the walrus could provide valuable information about the animal, for example about its diet.
Since 2019, IMR scientists have tagged cod in Western Norway only to “bother” them with noise during the spawning season. The aim is to be able to give better advice on seismic surveys.
That's the clear advice from our marine mammal scientist.
The project receives funding of 8,2 million EUR over the course of four years.
The researchers were able to tag three basking sharks in a single weekend. Read more here.
The pacific oyster is an invasive species that has fixed its grip along the coast of Southern Norway. It might also be the main diet of "Freya" the walrus, currently eating her way in the Oslofjord.
Determining the age of salmon from their scales is a task for trained experts. Now artificial intelligence may give them a hand.
For more than a decade, IMR researchers have been working closely with colleagues from partner institutions in Sudan with a particular focus on small scale fisheries.
When researchers manipulated the hours of daylight in an experimental setup, they got herring to spawn during the "wrong" time of year.
Join us to the Arctic on one of our most extreme cruises. Popularly called the James Bond cruise.
New study on potential impacts of wind industry on marine life in the North Sea.
The Kudoa parasite gives the mackerel’s flesh a soft, jelly-like consistency after it is dead.
Results from new genetic research could contribute to the further development of halibut as a farmed fish species.
New and improved technology allows researchers to track the movements of fish and other animals from second to second.
Researchers have found that Atlantic cod possess a set of “supergenes” that enable them to quickly adapt to environmental changes.
A unique project at IMR aims to shed light on the impact of offshore wind farms on the vulnerable early life stages of fish.
Behaviour and environmental conditions affect how genes are expressed. New research demonstrates how epigenetics may be highly relevant to the aquaculture industry.
In Western Norway, over half of all sea trout are infested with so many salmon lice that you would expect it to seriously harm their health.
Several hundred tonnes of blue whiting per trawl haul are fished, and accidents can occur. The trawl bag can simply burst because of the catch sizes.
Scientists have trained an artificially intelligent system to automatically count and recognize the species of fish that are photographed in the trawl under water.
He is excited and motivated for his new role at one of the biggest marine research institutes in Europe.
Marine heatwaves are becoming more frequent and intense due to climate change. This has wide-ranging impacts for ocean-human interactions, researchers find.
On Thursday afternoon, the research vessel G.O. Sars found cable that was missing from Lofoten-Vesterålen sea observatory (LoVe).
The Lofoten–Vesterålen Ocean Observatory (LoVe) is currently out of service. This is due to extensive damage to the outer circuit of the observatory, and it will take time for the full system to return to normal operations.
Scientists call for ocean-based action to tackle the climate crisis.
…and ended up at the same spot, at the same time where the scientists had tagged it the previous year.
The research vessel has been in Norway since March 2020. Now it is returning to Africa – with five first-time crew on board.
Watch their unique footage of the rare encounter
