The output was relevant targets for Mission Ocean 2030, and concrete actions for deployment of the mission. Also, research and development needs and recommendations were formulated. Read or download the report below.
Eight goals to transform the blue bioeconomy in the region
Focusing on the Western Baltic for the 1st Mission Arena
This brochure presents the SUBMARINER Network
In this report, the potentials and barriers that are considered relevant regarding Bornholm and mussel farming will initially be presented. Subsequently, the results and effects of the activities carried out in the projects will be presented. Finally, the future opportunities in relation to mussel farming and Bornholm will be outlined.
In this publication the authors ask how European food law impacts the transformative potential of alternative proteins, including single-cell
proteins, plant-based novel proteins, cultured meat, macroalgae, and insects.
This study reveals that altered trophic relationships from climate-induced changes in the productivity base may strongly impact keystone species, with potential knock-on effects on ecosystem functions.
Inverting nutrient fluxes across the land-water interface – Exploring the potential of zebra mussel farming
The authors of this paper studied the potential of zebra mussel farming for nutrient retention in a eutrophic lake.
Five Years of Interventions for the Blue Bioeconomy in the Baltic Sea Region
Our guiding document to realise our objectives in the Blue Economy
In this publication, a new modular spatial model for mussel mitigation farms is developed and presented.
Extending New Zealand’s Marine Shellfish Aquaculture Into Exposed Environments -Adapting to Modern Anthropogenic Challenges
New Zealand has a large exclusive economic zone (EEZ) of which the area between the 30 and 50 m bathymetric zone offers the most prospects for shellfish production. Only 0.3% of this zone would be required to increase New Zealand’s shellfish production by 150,000 t.
For most ordinary startups, funding is rarely an obstacle to a good business
idea. However, biotechnology is different for a number of reasons.
Mussel farming has been suggested as a new economic activity for the
Baltic Sea Region, with several potentially positive effects on environment, nutrient cycling, food security and employment. Small experimental mussel farms have been present in the area for about a decade, and in recent years several new and larger mussel farms have been initiated.
Catalyzing private investment in sustainable aquaculture production systems
Mussel farms can support the advancement of a sustainable Blue Economy in the Baltic Sea Region and substantially contribute to the achievement of a number of Sustainable Development Goals.
Environmental impact, production systems, species and feeds
Worldwide, aquaculture, including mussel production, has been fastest growing sector of the food industry since 1970s.
Establishing and running a mussel farm in the Baltic have to be addressed in the maritime spatial planning (MSP) process based on a methodology supported by scientific knowledge, legislation and knowledge of business potentials for mussel farming.
Our objective is to accelerate the
development of blue biotechnology
products by creating integrated,
transnational value chains
