Kari Lisbeth Fjørtoft is a fishery science graduate from the Norwegian College of Fishery Science at the University of Tromsø (1993).

Central fields of work include product and market-related issues. She works with market surveys, product testing and brand building. Niche products and little utilised species/resources have been a key focus, but more commercial products are also important areas. Examples of topics are deepsea species, onion-eyed grenadier, rest raw material, winkle, scallop, sea cucumber, crab, crayfish, roe, saltfish, klippfish, farmed halibut and pelagic species.
 
Kari is also a competence broker, where she has an important task in assisting companies in mapping and initiating key R&D projects with a view to increasing the level of know-how in the companies. She has also been involved in quality assurance, packaging and various reporting projects.
