All the advantages of land-based farming – at sea


Here’s how to increase the production of your farm – and do it sustainably

The benefits of closed containment for fish farming are well known. The risk of fish escaping is minimal, thanks to hard walls and double barriers, compared with the typical nets and pens used in aquaculture. Because water comes in through a deep inlet, the salmon are protected from sea lice, which swim nearer the surface. A closed cage also has less environmental impact because sedimental waste can be collected rather than allowing it to fall to the seabed.

In addition to the points above, FishGLOBE’s closed containment unit has some unique features that separates it from other technologies.

Sales Director Tor Magne Madsen says: “We have an easily movable unit, which can be moved from location to location within only a few days. This gives the farmers a unique flexibility to produce super smolts in different sites within the same cage, instead of moving the fish. We deliver the fish with a gentle, unique and patented method by lifting the globe, without using pens or nets.”

FishGLOBE has now started producing globe number two and we will have a brand-new globe producing premium, sustainable, environment-friendly post-smolts during the calendar year 2021. Even in the global pandemic, aquaculture clients in Norway, as well as in Scotland and Canada, are showing great interest in the technology.

“We are proving our technology works every day. This shows that closed containment is not a technology for the future; it’s a 100% functional and commercial technology right now,” adds Madsen.

Featured: The first globe in operation in Lysefjorden close to Stavanger are now in it’s 3rd generation of premium post-smolt cycle.
