Receiving development licenses
Midt-Norsk Havbruk received four development licenses to develop four generations of the semi closed fish cage Aquatraz owned by Seafarming Systems.
First Aquatraz G1 launched
The first Aquatraz fish cage was launched in Aug 2018 and placed in Eiterfjorden where it was stocked with salmon in Oct 2018. “So far, the experiences are good, both in terms of technology and biology. The project has given us a lot of knowledge that we bring with us in the further development of Aquatraz,” said Steingrim Holm, PM for the Aquatraz project to salmonbusiness.com
Aquatraz G3 with 18m lice skirts launched
“So far, the operation of the Aquatraz cage in Årsetfjorden has worked very well. Both temperature and salinity measurements show that we’re taking in water from a depth of about 20 metres, which is good with regard to lice pressure,” Holm explained to fishfarmingexpert.com
Aquatraz G4 tested new patent pending water circulation system
Finalising the development project
In addition to the technology development, large amounts of knowledge have been produced during the project, and shared openly. The reports are in Norwegian, but the results are summarised the results in English.
