The Norwegian government is set to propose spending NOK 32 million in the next state budget to improve coast monitoring and knowledge about life in the sea.
Among other things, the government will put in place a warning system for toxic algae and jellyfish that threaten fish farms.
The Institute of Marine Research will receive NOK 15.6 million, the Research Council’s marine work will be strengthened by NOK 15 million, and the Veterinary Institute will receive NOK 2 million.
The government also wants to increase knowledge about selected marine stocks such as snow crab, lobster, ling, cusk, anglerfish, and wolffish.
