The available database comprises research projects in Fisheries, Aquaculture, Seafood Processing and Marine Biotechnology active in the time period 2003-2022.
BlueBio is an ERA-NET COFUND created to directly identify new and improve existing ways of bringing bio-based products and services to the market and find new ways of creating value from in the blue bioeconomy.

The project acted as a node to explore and establish eelpout as a coastal indicators organism for assessing acceptable impact of pollutants in the Baltic coastal areas. Through our activities it is the purpose to form the basis for a network including all countries (scientists, managers, policymakers etc.) around the Baltic Sea. In the BALCOFISH project the interaction between science and users were important to ensure transfer of research needs and research outcome, and thus benefit development of both environmental sciences and management. The project planned to provide high tech science based input for appropriate measures in the management of the Baltic Sea environment to protect it against chemical pollution. Expected outcomes include to integrate genomics and ecotoxicology in studies and test strategies for exploring and establishing causal links of pollutants and effects relevant to coastal fish populations. Expected outcomes included also promoting progress of bridging gaps between science and users in the management of the Baltic Sea by arranging arenas where management, policy and science issues meet. Workshops including sampling campaigns we organized at several polluted and clean sites including Danish coastal regions, polluted sites in Wismar Bay, pulp mill and sewage effluents recipient coastal sites along the Swedish coast.
