|Friday, 06 July 2012 20:46|
Global animal health and nutrition company Alltech and the Norwegian Institute of Food, Fisheries and Aquaculture Research (Nofima) have entered a strategic research alliance that will focus on optimising nutrition and management practices in the salmon industry.
The three year agreement underscores applied research alliances as an important type of public-private partnership, which will create value and facilitate growth in global aquaculture.
The research from this partnership will be conducted in six of Nofima’s Norway-based research centres, including Tromsø, Bergen, Stavanger, Ås, Sunndalsøra and Averøy.
Alltech Algae, a company based in Winchester, Kentucky, United States, is one of the largest algae production facilities in the world. The company is exploring the applications of algae in animal nutrition and aquaculture.
Alltech's research alliance with Nofima is in line with the company’s global sales strategy, which sees aquaculture as a significant contributor to its four billion dollar USD sales goal.
“This agreement with Nofima is a significant step in the advancement of these goals,” he continued.
“This alliance helps achieve a common goal shared by Alltech and Nofima: advancing science while stimulating business creation in aquaculture,” said, Dr. Øyvind Fylling-Jensen, president and CEO of Nofima.
“Nofima covers the whole aquaculture value chain, which is vital to a business that has the eyes of the environmental movement set on its operations. We need not only to know what works and what pays off, but also what is sustainable," he continued.
"Exploring the solutions provided by algae, together with a global business leader like Alltech, creates fantastic future prospects for research for the aquaculture industry and for the environment.”
