"Aquaculture and sustainable fisheries for nutrition. Lessons learned from Norway, by Ole Arve Misund, Director General National Institute of Nutrition and Seafood Research. Ministry of Trade, Industry and Fisheries"

  1. 1. Aquaculture and sustainable fisheries for nutrition Learning from Norway Ole Arve Misund, Livar Frøyland, Ingvild Eide Graff, Gro-Ingunn Hemre, Geir Lasse Taranger
  2. 2. Norwegian Fisheries: ~ 80 fish stocks, 10 000 fishers, 6000 vessels, 2.5 mill ton catch - Well regulated: TAC science based, technical reg., precautionary approach, harvest control rules, fisheries monitoring and inspections, biodiversity conservation
  3. 3. Norwegian aquaculture • 1.2 mill. tons Atlantic salmon (Salmo salar), 70 000 tons of rainbow trout (O. mykiss) • Challenges in salmon aquaculture: – Environmental sustainability (e.g. sea lice) – Sustainable feed resources • Considerable R&D to develop other species for aquaculture e.g. Atlantic cod and Atlantic halibut; prod. low due to disease, prod. & market issues • Minor farming of mussels and lobster Norwegian farming of salmon, trout & other species 1980- 2014
  4. 4. Research in the whole food chain – from fish feed to seafood and health effects Health effects?Feed Fish health and welfare (farmed fish) Seafood Wild fish
  5. 5. National policies to support fish consumption Debate about undesirable substances; Limit to two meals of fatty fish per week? Directorate of health (2011): Eat 2-3 seafood dinners per week
  6. 6. Seafood Norwegians eat (2015) Source: Europanel/Norw. Seafood Council
  7. 7. Seafood consumption among Norwegian women 0 10 20 30 40 50 60 70 80 18-29 30-39 40-49 50-59 60-70 NORKOST 1997 NORKOST 2011 g/day Age women Oily fish only 14 g/day (Mean for all women, 2011) Wild salmon Farmed salmon EFSA: 0,25 g/day (2010)
  8. 8. Conclusions: • Seafood may contribute with nutrients not commonly found in other food items • Farmed salmon an important source of marine omega-3 fatty acids, possible to tailor with vitamin D • Fisheries and aquaculture may contribute to food and nutrition security
