    SALT has carried out a wide variety of projects tied to the sea and coast. The size and format of end products vary by project, but all are knowledge based and visually appealing. SALT´s goal is to always deliver according to the motto «academically strong – vibrant delivery», regardless whether we are delivering within research, consultancy or outreach. Client feedback testifies that SALT delivers according to promise.

    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.

    Emerging Leaders

    Emerging Leaders

    Future activities and operations in the Arctic call for a broad understanding of the opportunities and challenges to ensure sustainable development. Emerging Leaders calls for young professionals and Ph.D. students/post docs to meet with representatives from academia, business and the public sector through an inspiring and educational program.

    Emerging Leaders is a side event of the international Arctic Frontiers conference in Tromsø, every year in January. 30 selected candidates from different countries participate in a blend of technical, social and cultural events accompanied by mentors from business, politics and academia. The program starts in the city of Bodø, then continues onboard the Norwegian Coastal Express “Hurtigruten” and ends in Tromsø, “the gateway to the Arctic”. To explore the marine resources and potential in the Lofoten Islands, a stopover will be made in Svolvær.  The participants will be challenged to engage in discussions and presentations during the program.

    In a world of increasing turmoil, the Arctic is still a place for collaboration and peaceful communication. In order to maintain peaceful relations across borders in the north, the encompassing science collaboration has been particularly important. The vast ocean that represents the bulk of the arctic area carries large potential, but also great threats. As increasingly larger parts of it will be utilized, how do we secure productive and healthy oceans? Sustainable development of the ocean is of particular importance in this matter. Sustainable business development is also key in securing resilient arctic societies. Connecting these societies together and closer to the rest of the world, while bringing ideas, knowledge, technology and capital together, are overarching topics during the exciting week of Arctic Frontiers Emerging Leaders.

    The Emerging Leaders’ program is linked to the annual topic of Arctic Frontiers and includes the following sessions:
    Session 1        Politics and Security in the High North
    Session 2        Technology Development and Arctic Business
    Session 3        Annual Arctic Frontiers topic
    Session 4        Workshop; preparing for presentation at Arctic Frontiers

    Ocean Plastic

    Ocean Plastic

    OCEAN PLASTIC Marine plastic pollution from the Norwegian seafood sector – mapping, quantification and mitigation:

    The key objective of HAVPLAST is to reduce plastic pollution into the marine environment from the Norwegian fisheries and aquaculture sectors. Concrete mitigative measures will be suggested based on research on sources and quantities of plastic pollution from each sector. Relevant indicators will be suggested to measure the effects of mitigative measures suggested.

    Troms – Arctic Knowledge

    Troms – Arctic Knowledge

    «Troms – Arctic Knowledge» is a joint stand for businesses and public bodies from the Troms county in Norway during the international aquaqulture-fair “Aqua Nor” in Trondheim. SALT is project manager for the stand in 2015, 2017 and 2019. We co-operate closely with our sub-contractors Messetjeneste, Sisu Design lab and the Ultimate Seafood Chef – Einar Hallstensen.

    Johan Castberg

    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.
