Pilot Project Explores Potential for Deep-Sea Salmon Farm

Farmed salmon is nothing new, but until recently that meant raising the fish in large nets in sheltered waters (called shoreline farming). Now, SalMar ASA is nearing the end of a US$300 million yearlong pilot project to test the viability of the world's first deep-sea aquaculture farm. Three miles (4.8 kilometers) off the coast of Norway, the project team built a 220-foot (67-meter) high mesh-wire framed net that floats in the ocean and is decked out with automated feeding valves. The underwater space is big enough to hold 1.5 million salmon.
