In the newly published Annual Report for EXPOSED you can read more about our work last year.
In 2017, several innovations and new fish farming concepts have been presented, driven by the opportunity to apply for development licences and the persistent challenges of sea lice. Many of the 104 submitted applications aim at farming at exposed locations.
SalMar’s Ocean Farm 1 was the first concept to be approved. Partners in EXPOSED contribute with significant R & D to this and several of the other novel fish farm concepts. Also, fish farming and marine operations at current sites with state-of-the-art technology remain challenging and are still highly relevant for the research within the EXPOSED centre.
