How can we utilize our aquatic resources, also known as the Blue Biomass better?

No idea is too crazy!

This video was produced by Kontor Reykjavík for Matís and the Nordic Council of Ministers.

Aquatic bioresources (blue biomass) from oceans and freshwater are an important part of the Nordic Bioeconomy. However, not all of our aquatic resources are fully utilized. In this video contest, the goal is for students to put forward their ideas on how to increase resource efficiency and utilisation by processing underutilized biomass and sidestreams into higher-value compounds. We welcome videos of any type; presentation, scripted, documentary, animated…anything you can think of.
