Smart fishing gear, scientific publications and training new researchers are just a few of the achievements of the Centre for Research-based Innovation in Sustainable fish capture and Pre-processing technology (CRISP).
Ragnhild Aven Svalheim and Jesse Brinkhof are two of CRISP’s PhD-students who have recently defended their dissertation.
CRISP's eight and final annual report is now available.
Christian Michelsen Research has integrated support for Deep Vision images in their acoustic interpretation software LSSS. See video of the new functionality in use on a recent cruise conducted by the Institute of Marine Research (IMR), Norway.
In this seventh CRISP year, the process of developing new knowledge, new fishing gears and instruments for the fishing fleet as important tools for making the trawl and purse seine fisheries more sustainable has continued. These achievements have only been possible because of extensive cooperation between the centre’s industry partners and research institutes.
The annual meeting for Centre for sustainable catch, CRISP, was held in Bergen on September 5 and 6. Issues such as catch control during trawling and structuring within the fishing fleets have different results in the pelagic and white fish sectors were discussed. (Story in Norwegian only.)
Scantrol Deep Vision has been presented in NRK Hordaland radio morning news. The company was featured as one of the entrepreneurs on the west coast of Norway that received financial support from Innovation Norway last year, for the development of its underwater fish monitoring system.
In this fifth CRISP year the process of developing new knowledge, new fishing gears and instruments for the fishing fleet as important tools for making the trawl and purse seine fisheries more sustainable has continued. These achievements have only been possible because of extensive cooperation between the centre’s industry partners and research institutes.
A main focus in CRISP is to create tomorrow's fishing methods through cooperation across various fields. Half way throught the project period, NOFIMA makes up status for it’s part of the project.
The research cruise for CRISP and the SEEBED project is soon over. We are now on Tromsøflaket, the spring sun is here and the mood is good. Cruise leader Aril Engås (or "the conductor" as I call him) has hearded "the cats" on board the research ship G.O. Sars fairly successfully, but now I think he has to sleep for a few days. (Story in Norewgian only).
At day CRISP-participants will develop and improve varios trawl trechnologies. At night the people imnvolved in the Seebed project will apply broadband accoustics to get a better view of demersal fish and other species close to the bottom. Research ship G.O. Sars embark from Bodø today on a research cruise with a technological focus.(Story in Norwegian only).
Research within the field go pelagic fisheries is divided into several small projects. There is, however, a connection between these projects. A seminar for the pelagic fishing fleet held in Bergen on 15 December aims to demonstrate the span in the research and the applicability of the projects. (Story in Norwegian only).
Aud Wold presented the CRISP centre when the Institute of Marine research held a short conference i Brussels on 20 October in order to meet EU decision makers and research colaborators.

The annual CRISP meeting for project partners took place at Åsgårdstrand just outside Horten in September. Here is the CRISP-gang on the pier where famous painter Edvard Munch painted "The girls on the Bridge". (Story in Norwegian only)
Consumers request cod of sufficient quality, the industry chases sufficient quantity of cod to satisfy market demand. Ragnhild Aven Svalheim asks if the cod is being treated sufficiently well. (Story in Norwegian only).
After four years at the helm, John Willy Valdemarsen retires as CRISP manager. Aud Vold takes over. (Story in Norwegian)
- The competence of the research team is high and many of the senior scientists are among the world leading actors in their fields. We were impressed by many aspects of this project. The work programme is very relevant and timely.
