Risk and impact assessment

The marine environment is in focus, where we deploy field work, laboratory experiments and modeling in order to examine effects of permanent and acute emissions from oil and gas activities, as well as from the aquaculture and mining industries.

In the project ”Fluclim”, researchers explore consequences in the natural sea environment from increased use of delousing agents in the fight against sea lice.

In the project ”Farming of Atlantic salmon in semi-enclosed cages”, the aim is to explore how fish farming in closed sea cages affects the growth, quality and salmon fish health.

In the project ”Aquaccept”, IRIS Environment and IRIS Social Science collaborate with foreign partners to examine what is acceptable aquaculture impact on marine coastal systems.
