Aquafarm Equipment has solved some of the biggest challenges faced by modern aqua-culture industry. We have developed a cost-effective, closed fish cage for post-smolt production that prevents the escape of fish, drastically reduces the risk of salmon louse, and reduces the release of organic nutrients and waste into the surrounding environment.
The result is the Aquafarm closed cage system. Developed and thoroughly tested in close cooperation with Marintek, DNV GL, Norconsult, Multiconsult and SINTEF. Our innovative fish-cage concept has been certified according to NS 9415:2009 and Nytek, allowing for one million fish up to one kilogram.
Since 2013, we have worked closely with Mowi (Marine Harvest) to carry out full-scale tests of our closed fish cage for post-smolt production – with very good results. Together, we have fine-tuned and perfected our post-smolt facilities.
Now we’re making the next step. Aquafarm Equipment are working to establish test facilities for production of both brood fish and market-ready fish.
