Marine production and the marine environment

Marine production and the sustainable exploitation of the marine environment are becoming more important in the blue economy.

Adjusting to the landing obligation and addressing the environmental impact of fishing are major challenges for the sector. Specifically, ILVO’s technical research for fisheries focuses on reducing the impact of the current beam trawl, continuing to develop electric pulse fishing and passive fishing, and research on the survival of discarded fish.

Within ILVO, fisheries and the sustainable exploitation of the marine environment remain an important line of research.

Our approach

We guarantee an open environment where collaboration andexchange of ideas is encouraged. We develop and test prototypes and evaluate their performance. If we encounter a problem, we try to gain an understanding of what went wrong by listening to the different voices and perspectives of our stakeholders.

They are used for essential oils in cosmetics and pharmaceutics or as a seed oil that offers a renewable and environmental friendly alternative for the dyeing and textile industry. Because the crop is in such high demand, it would be interesting to mechanize the marigold harvesting process for farmers and processing companies alike.
