Share on Facebook Share on Twitter PDF Print E-mail

 

The Institute of Marine Research (IMR) is the biggest research institute of its kind in Europe, with over 1,000 employees. Our main activities are research, advisory work and monitoring. In January 2018, the IMR was merged with NIFES – The National Institute of Nutrition and Seafood Research. The activity linked to research on fish nutrition and the effects of fish and seafood consumption on our health are continued in the new institute.


The new institute will be a leading supplier of knowledge relating to the sustainable management of the resources in our marine ecosystems and the whole food chain from the sea to the table. The IMR has its head office in Bergen, but it also has offices and research stations at other locations in Norway. In addition, the Research Vessel Department has ownership responsibility for the research vessels, which are its most important tools for collecting marine data. The IMR also has several laboratories that analyze samples collected by its monitoring and research programs.

Through its research and advice, the IMR seeks to help society to continue exploiting the valuable assets in the sea sustainably. We are a neutral knowledge provider, and we publish our research results both in Norway and Internationally. The IMR is affiliated to the Ministry of Trade, Industry and Fisheries and advise the authorities, business and industry, and the government administration to support them in their work.

The Norwegian National Institute of Nutrition and Seafood Research became a member of the SAFE consortium since June 2016. In January 2018, they merged with the Institute of Marine Research.
