Environmental Study of Skjerstadfjorden

Environmental Study of Skjerstadfjorden

SALT managed a major environmental study of Skjerstadfjorden in co-operation with the sub-contractors Akvaplan-niva, NIVA and North University. The Skjertadfjord represents a unique fjord system where the greatest depth is 500 meters. The outlet in Saltstraumen is only 26 meters in depth. The study particularly focused on uncovering potential eutrhrophication of the fjord system.

Marine Youth Outreach

Marine Youth Outreach

An outreach project targeting pupils in secondary school in order to build a stronger coastal identity and pride within youth living in coastal societies in northern Norway. SALT, photographer Arthur Arnesen, electronica artist Benjamin Mørk and the Norwegian Oil and Gas Association travel three weeks a year to the northernmost regions to spend a whole day with the local youth. Together, we explore the value of the surrounding marine resources and the educational opportunities connected to them and for the future of the coast. We aim to increase awareness towards the possibilities northern Norway can offer, and motivate them to get the knowledge needed to participate in the region’s development.



Large quantities of microplastics are constantly entering the oceans from landbased sources. The project FanpLESStic-Sea aims to reduce this problem, particularly in the Baltic Sea region.

The project has three key targets:

  • increased knowledge of where microplastics come from and their transport pathways
  • evaluation of technology that can reduce microplastic or reduce microplastic leakage before reaching watercourses,
  • increased knowledge and commitment of decision makers through suggestions on how to implement cost-effective methods to reduce microplastics.

The project has partners in Sweden, Finland, Norway, Denmark, Poland, Latvia, Lithuania and Russia. SALT is the only Norwegian partner in the project.

The project period is from January 1st 2019 to June 30th 2021, and the total budget of the project is 2 968 069 euro.
