Miljostiftelsen Bellona (Norway)
The Bellona Foundation was founded in 1986 and is an independent, non-profit organisation. Bellona aims to meet and fight global warming, through identifying and implementing sustainable environmental solutions. Bellona has approx. 50 employees working at the main office in Oslo and our international offices in Brussels (Belgium/EU) and Russia (St. Petersburg and Murmansk).
Bellona has over 20 years of experience when it comes to international projects (including a FP7 project), and is currently involved in various projects that focus on improving the dialogue between civil society, research and government. Bellona has worked in the interface between the aquaculture industry, science, politics and governance of the sector for many years, as we believe the production of low trophic species has the potential to realise low impact production of food and raw materials for feed and bioprocessing. We see increased production of marine, low trophic species as crucial to meet some of the major challenges of food and feed security on a global level without further worsening global warming and other environmental issues.
