Environmental policy and innovation in Norwegian fish farming: Resolving the sea lice problem?

Marine Policy, Vol 117, July 2020, pp. 1-10.

The incentives for private R&D are therefore insufficient. Innovation policy should thus prioritize innovations with a high public good content. This is not the case in Norway today.
