WATCH: Subsea Salmon Farming with Atlantis Concept


Earlier this year, Norwegian company AKVA group teamed up with Sinkaberg-Hansen and Egersund Nethas to establish Atlantis Subsea Farming to develop submersible fish-farming facilities for salmon on an industrial scale.

Atlantis Subsea Farming has applied for six development licences to enable large-scale development and testing of the new technology and operational concept.

The work on Atlantis started in summer 2014, and experts from all three companies have been and will continue to be involved in the work with the Atlantis concept.

Atlantis aims to contribute to better and more sustainable use of current farming sites as well as to enable use of more exposed sites than is currently possible.

The goal is to achieve production gains and improve fish welfare by submerging the facilities, as they will be far less exposed to the environmental and physical conditions than in a surface position.

Large-scale testing will focus on third-party documentation of fish welfare and production performance, the technological capabilities of the system, and safeguarding the occupational health and safety of employees.
