Salt knowledge about and for the coast
 
Coast

From our office windows in the harbour of Svolvær in Northern Norway, SALT enjoys the view over the Lofoten Sea. Through quiet and stormy weather. In winter darkness and under the midnight sun. We are present when the fishing fleet hauls in the nomadic winter cod, called skrei, from the fishing banks. We are here when the very same skrei is hung on traditional wooden racks to dry. We are here when skrei, transformed into stockfish, is shipped out into the world. We will be here as new coastal industries emerge. As consultants and as partners in dialogue. With SALT knowledge about challenges and opportunities for the future.

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.

Johan Castberg

This project explores possible effects for the livestock- and fisheries industry on the different alternatives for development and operation for the oil-field Johan Castberg. SALT was responsible for gathering knowledge on coastal fisheries, sami fisheries and recreational fisheries who will possibly be affected by the development of the field. The assignment entailed conducting interviews with relevant actors within fisheries and affected muncipalities.
