Pioneering Fish-Farming Techniques
Kvarøy is Blue Circle’s farm partner in Norway. Committed to offering high quality salmon without compromising the environment or the welfare of the fish, the salmon are raised in open-net deep-ocean, low-density pens. Each pen is filled with 2% fish and 98% water to make sure the fish have plenty of room to swim. This creates lower stress on the fish, improves water flow, minimizes benthic impact and reduces the chance of illness for the fish. Check out the video below for more information.
