Norwegian firm buys site for new land-based salmon farm

The move goes in line with plans to become 'Europe's largest land-based fish farm.'

Land-based salmon project Salmon Evolution bought a property at Indre Harøy in Fræna, Norway to build a recirculated aquaculture system (RAS) salmon farm.

The site is currently owned by the Fræna local authorities, and is partly a quarry and undeveloped land zoned for commercial development.

The strategic and industrial conditions of the location are “optimal” for land-based aquaculture, said Salmon Evolution President Kristofer Reiten.

“This is an important milestone, and fully in line with our timetable for realizing Europe’s largest land-based fish farm,” said Reiten.

“The development will also help to strengthen the region.”

Salmon Evolution was founded in 2017, with the aim of building a land-based salmon farm in Møre og Romsdal, Norway.
