Blue Revolution Center Pushes Aquaculture Farther Offshore

February 26, 2018

Marine Harvest and researchers plan to develop a floating laboratory for radical exposed fish farming technology to help the sector grow sustainably.

 

The Norwegian aquaculture industry has the potential to grow its production volumes five-fold from 2010 levels to 5 million tons by 2050. But it has been hindered lately by biological conditions. Norwegian salmon will increase only 2-4% in volumes this year to 1.2 million tons — still below 2012 levels – partly because of sea lice, according to the Norwegian Seafood Council.  

 

“If there was a solution for sea lice, we could have grown with the given technology,” said Alf-Helge Aarskog, Marine Harvest chief executive during its third quarter results presentation this past November. “We will need radical new technology.”
