    • THE MARELIFE NEWS • NOVEMBER • 20122 23 SIGNATURESLeaderscommitted tobiocooperation Norwegian bioeconomy is behind the pioneering «BioVerdi» project, based at Oslo Innovation Center. 23 top executives have signed the partnership declaration. The project picks up the results from recent large report made by Oslo Business School, «Et kunnskapsbasert Norge» (A knowledge based Norway), wich reflects the status of the most important Norwegian industry sectors. "Bio Verdi" aims at adressing the challenges and opportunities of the bio sector part of these industries, and to provide recommandations to enhance innovation. The project has been well received in all environ- ments, from universities and industry to venture capital sector. The analytical approach is robust: experts from all bio economy sectors; medicine, marine, agro and industry together with Academia and capital owners have formed working groups, the main delivery from which is to propose on important measures to be implemented for the purpose to foster enhanced innovation in the Norwegian bioeconomy sectors. The recommendation short list will be substanti- ated by mobilizing adequate analyses, statistics to support the pro- posals. “BioVerdi” is a cross field and trans boundary initiative to develop a stronger "ecosystem" of innovation. The project is established in partnership between leading R&D units, industry representatives from bio production and pharma, capital owners and with support from public policy system and authorities. The partners commitment and ownership to the project are based on a planning document written by Øystein Lie. “Bio Verdi” seeks to establish an International Advisory Board, represented by the Nordics, UK, USA and Singapore. “BioVerdi” intends to try to con- nect to “The Norwegian Industrial Biotechnology Network”, as a pos- sible pilot or demonstration project. In essence the Norwegian bioeconomy sector is behind the pro- ject since top excecutives of the leading players of all four major branches: Marine, agri, health and process industry together with R&D organisations have endorsed its ideas and goals.

    • THE MARELIFE NEWS • NOVEMBER • 2012 3 BioVerdi. This is one major motif why MareLife chair, Carl Seip Hane- vold and many of MareLife members involve in BioVerdi. They fore- see new synergistic powers to be tapped for the blue sector through this project. BERGEN THINK TANKVisionpapertobeconludedat NASFDayZero2013 A think tank aiming at producing a vision paper with work- ing title: “Solutions needed to expand global aquaculture substantially to meet with future food demands” is to be in action in advance of and ready to present short list action points at the NASF Day Zero in Bergen. This is one of many new features at the popular innovation seminar warming up the North Atlantic Seafood Forum. When the very first NASF makes its takeoff in the “world mar- ine?(seafood) capital” Bergen on Tuesday March 5h, the focus will be on global aquaculture solutions (GAS), how to innovate new solutions to advance the aquaculture sector. Day Zero will be chaired by Karl Almås, CEO SINTEF Fishery & Aquaculture, and moderated by Jostein Refsnes (Chair Norlaks). The seminar is hosted by MareLife, manager Øystein Lie, and Fiskerifor- um Vest, manager Tanja Hoel. The main NASF Day Zero Partner is The Norwegian Seafood Research Fund. Minister of Fisheries and Coastal Affairs, Lisbeth Berg-Hansen will be invited to give the opening address, and opening keynote speech will be delivered by George Chamberlain, president of Global Aquaculture Alliance. Themes to be focused are the feed capacity and a series of other important issues and the search for corresponding solutions to se- cure a sustainable expansion of the global aquaculture business. According to Øystein Lie and Tanja Hoel the seminar is designed in these days, and it will consist of chapters on aquaculture in tem- perate, tropical and cold water. Solutions in critical fields like the be- low listed will be highlighted: o Complete genome based breeding regimes o Novel vaccination strategies for sustainable fish farming o Revealing new insight to fight viral, bacterial and parasite in- fections o New feed resources and technologies (algae etc) o Gear and engineering solutions o Sustainable catch of wild resources and maximized utilization of corresponding byproducts for aquafeeds and ingredients o Solutions for space and water o Necessary legislations, standards of quality and best practices More about NASF 2013: http://www.nor-seafood.com/ FINALIZING BLUEBIOGreatinterregionalmarinere- searchprojectconcluded The interreg project BlueBio, where MareLife has been an active partner, was concluded at a conference at Marstrand Havshotell, Thursday November 29. Blue Bio has brought about active networking between academy, industry and society, to promote sustainable marine innovations. “Blue Biotech for sustainable innovations” (Blue Bio) is a cross- border project in the Kattegatt-Skagerack region, and it has been working towards knowledge-based development and integration of research and industry. The goal is to find sustainable ways of ex- ploiting the marine environment and resources. Blue Bio has been working towards expanding the potential for the industrial use of microalgae. With relevant research, industrial collaborations and development of the marine innovation platform, Blue Bio reinforces microalgae as a valuable resource for industries working with foodstuffs, feeds, nutrition, pharma and bioenergy. A new area of competence At the end 2012 the project group of Blue Bio will hand over sug- gestions and tools for further development of marine biotechno- logy in the KASK-region to the intrinsic innovation system. This includes a handbook of innovation in the marine environment, an analysis of the current state and future potential for industrial use of microalgae, and a marine biotechnology platform of relev- ant researchers, companies and new innovation cases, which have been knitted together through several workshops and confer- ences. Project members in Sweden and Norway: University of Gothen- burg (Lead Partner), Innovationskontor Väst, Chalmers University of Technology, MareLife (Norwegian project owner), Norwegian Uni- versity of Life Sciences (UMB), Kjeller Innovasjon Concrete core deliverables from the project are: Microalgae mar- ket and technology analysis, Development of manual for commercial- ization/startups for the universities, Assisting in commercialization of a series of R&D cases, Running relevant marine biotech work- shops, Communication.

ESCAPEES ON THE AGENDAAquacultureenvironmentalis- sueswithemphasisontracing andpreventingescapees The MareLife miniseminar concept was again a great suc- cess, Sept. 19-2012. This time featuring one of the out- most important issues for the sector reputation: Environmental issues with emphasis on tracing and prevent- ing escapees in aquaculture. This is likely the reason for the success of this seminar concept: always sector important issues on the agenda and it attracts a di- verse array of players again which foster vibrant cross talk. Around 40 people covering producers, technical solution pro- viders, R&D entities, sector umbrella organizations, fishery authorit- ies, NGOs and press gathered at Oslo Innovation center. The presentations were chaired by Øystein Lie and the sub- sequent discussion by Jostein Refsnes. The agenda was set and presentations were opened by the Nor- wegian Seafood Federation (FHL) director on environmental issues: Aina Valland with an overview of their new enforced emphasis on environmental issues: sealice, fish health, escapees, feed resources, installment of a new fund etc. This main talk was followed by a series of technical solutions for tracing (DNA based tracing by Sisse Kjøglum AquaGen and Matthew Baranski Nofima, , physical tagging by Pål Chr Kruger Europharma and preventing escapees by Håvard Haraldsen Havtek and Carl Ivar Holmen, Seafood Security. A vibrant discussion took place chaired by Jostein Refsnes. Although there was quite a distance in the position of the NGOs present and the aquaculture sector people as of the reality picture of the threats and impact of cultured on wild salmon, there was a con- sensus that more knowledge was needed. The ongoing DNA projects would assist on advancing our knowledge about these interactions Blue Bio Project Manager Camilla Petterson (left), University of Gothenburg, and Prof. Øystein Lie, Executive Manager, MareLife.

Also it was emphasized the need of instantly knowing wild or es- caped and from where, at the moment too challenging to the DNA- method but also here there is a continuous development in speed of analysis. It was also suggested that the one method did not exclude the other but rather could mutually strengthen. Hence, also a physic- al tagging method was presented by Europharma. Overall there was also a consensus that the ultimate goal is to prevent most and ideally all escapees and this vision was addressed by two concepts: the intelligent electronic net by Havtek and the re- sponder tag by Seafood Security.

    • THE MARELIFE NEWS • NOVEMBER • 20126 SALMON GENOME PAVING THE WAY FOR NEW BUSINESS AquaGenASAkeypartnerinthe newconsortiumBlueGenomic Chile In several projects the Salmon, Trout and Cod Genome research has brought new, significant steps forward, and will in the coming years form the basis for development and commercialization of new products and services in the aquaculture sector according to the Aqua Gene management. - Aqua Gens early investments in the dual platforms of biotechnology and breeding has already led to new products that give the aquaculture sector more choices for improving productivity and sustainability. The completion of the salmon genome, combined with the Biotech 2021 program in Norway and Blue Genomics consortiumin Chile will build a solid fundament for new innovative products and services that will reach the marketplace in near future, says Odd Magne Rødseth, CEO, Aqua Gen. Head of research at AquaGen, Nina Santi, says the company now exploits the knowledge from the Salmon Genome Project to improve the farmed salmons survival and quality. - Through focused product development, ourt products with increased IPN and PD resistance are already in the market, and with markers for fillet colour coming to market soon, says Santi. She reveals other tools to be used in further research: Three new SNP chips developed by Aqua Gen in collaboration with CIGENE/UMB, two for salmon and one for trout. The first salmon chip will contain some 950 000 SNP, which is a giant leap forward compared to what is available today. The best chip at the moment contain some 6 000 SNP. These chips represents total new powerful tools for identifying industrial important genes, the information of which will advance salmonid genetic enhancements to new levels. According to Nina Santi, AquaGen puts great effort in collaboration with researchers both in Norway and internationally, and to enhance the knowledge regarding the salmon genome and methods of selection. In the RCN BIOTEK2021 program, AquaGen - together with three partners - will contribute through the recently granted AQUAGENOME project under the supervision of CEES, University of Oslo. - We will bring the work with the salmon and cod genomes into the next phase, Santi says. In the project 1000 genomes of each species shall be sequenced, mapping the geneti variation within the species. The genetic variation is the main basis for any breeding progress. New methods to develop sterile salmon, SALMOSTERILE managed by HI, is another research project with which AquaGene is Odd Magne Rødseth, CEO, Aqua Gen: A solid fundament for new innovative products and services that will reach the marketplace in near future.

This research can help to solve the problems concerning potential adverse genetic interaction between escaped farmed salmon and wild salmon. Finally Nina Santi says the new Chilean consortium Blue Genomics Chile, will be an important platform to address issues as SRS and Caligus. The consortium consisting of Aqua Gen ASA, Aqua Gen Chile SA, Vaxxinova and Biobank has been supported by Corfo to establish a marine biotech innovation center in Puerto Varas in Chile. The new center, named "Blue Genomics Chile" has a total budget of 17 million USD. The objective is to make use of new knowledge and technologies developed in the wake of the Salmon Genome Project to identify genetic markers and mapping mechanisms specifically related to disease resistance. The development will form the basis for commercialization of new products and services that contribute to a sustainable and profitable development of the aquaculture sector. Priorities for Blue Genomics Chile are rickettsiosis (SRS) and salmon lice (Caligus) that represents the largest risk factors in the industry. The new center will also include other areas such as functional genomics and genomic related services such as biobanking services We are very pleased with this investment in “Blue Genomics Chile” and it is an important contribution to the fish farming industry in Chile, not least because it will introduce even more cutting edge technology to the industry in Chile. I am impressed with the research conducted in this field here in Norway, and with Aqua Gen, which I had the pleasure of visiting, says the Chilean ambassador to Norway, Juan Aníbal Barría. We also believe the Blue Genomics Chile consortium provides a very good opportunity for an even closer cooperation between the Chilean industry and the Norwegian fish farming industry and Norwegian capital, he says. There is an increased interest for investing in Chile, and Norway is moving up on the rankings of foreign investment in Chile. Norway`s importance is growing in comparison to other countries, says Ambassador Barría. Carl Seip Hanevold, Chair of MareLife, geneticist by graduation and heavily involved in the Norwegian and international industrial aquaculture revolution over 4 decades, states: - The described new aqua genomics efforts between Norway and Chile with AquaGen and allies in pivotal roles, represent a paradigm shift in genetic enhancement of farmed fish.
