Neptun Art/Science Lab, Museum Nord A physical and theoretical hub in the Intersection of Art and Science at the Norwegian Fishing Industry Museum, North Norway. Herring oil was produced here for more than 70 years, and now it is home to the Norwegian Fishing Industry Museum. The Lab functions as an international hub and lab for hypothetical and conceptual research in the field of art and science with the main focus on new ways of harvesting the sea, and new ways of processing what we harvest from the sea, through the use of experimental and new technology.
