Norwegian salmon has a challenge with pollution in some places disease, escape and lice which may eventually set a bar for good salmon prices and development. So what about a type of farming in the Oslo Fjord and Sognefjord that is protected against all this? That may show the Norwegian population in urban areas what it really is, and that the salmon industry also take this seriously. Check here:
Mads Bækkelund & Fjord Vision Lax has proposed two concessions in the Oslo Fjord and Sognefjord, and may apply for 2 in North Troms. These concessions will:
- all waste / sludge will be taken up and converted into fuel and organic fertilizer in The Magic Factory in Tønsberg as Erna Solberg opened last year, https://www.regjeringen.no/no/aktuelt/grevebiogass/id2511051/
- healthy food to school children, everyone is welcome aboard pens to see how healthy salmon grow up. Also, there it will have its own information center in downtown Oslo and the test kitchen for anyone who might be interested, and a separate food truck 2 SALMON KING running around with school lunches and healthy cool lunch packages from 10 to 25 NOK. All other Norwegian breeders will also showcase their business at the center of Oslo.
- Net pens in is sea semi closed with nets in carbon fiber that can not be torn apart and prevents escape. Or they can be closed completely when submerged.
- The sludge is collected in a collector on the bottom of the cage to be sucked up and tumbled in the cage and the shipped to Greve Biogas.
- In the Oslo fjord the facility will be located near two river mouths emitting freshwater, providing so low salinity that lice will not adhere to the fish, or that there will be no lice at all.
- Disease, fewer fish in pens and healthier for with touches of algae, Pacific oysters and carrot puree (pelletized) gives much better upbringing. Pacific oyster is a foreign element that flood the beaches and rocks in the Oslo fjord, but we intend to take it up and give to the salmon.
