Faculty of Biosciences and Aquaculture (FBA) is a leading academic centre in the fields of aquaculture and marine sciences in Norway.
Bodø, with its coastal location just north of the Arctic Circle, is a perfect environment for studies and research in aquaculture, ecology and other fields of marine sciences in the Northern hemisphere. Aquaculture and fisheries are important economic activities in this region and they also bring societal and financial support to the faculty. Research at FBA focuses on the fields of aquaculture, marine ecology and marine genomics, and the interaction between these subject fields.
The three strategic research groups aquaculture, marine ecology and marine genomics are organised into research units.
The faculty offers modern facilities, including state-of-the-art laboratories and a large, well-equipped research station with its own harbour.
