Professor at the University of Stavanger
Ragnar Tveterås is an economist and has done research on aquaculture and seafood industry economics and markets since the 1990s. His research has been concerned with the entire value chain from primary production to final consumer markets, with a focus on econometric analysis of productivity, economic risk, market demand, and market integration. Through his entire career he has been in dialogue with industry stakeholders and decision makers. Tveterås has contributed to policy and regulation processes, for example, as head of a government appointed white paper commission (“NOU-utvalg”) proposing new policies for the seafood industry (NOU 2014:16). He has published over 40 peer-reviewed articles, of which most are empirical analyses of food and seafood industries and markets.
