Norwegian fish farming: room for growth28 February, 2014 –

THE Norwegian region of Helgeland, which already produces over five per cent of the global output of farmed salmon, has been told there is still room for further expansion.

The region’s mayors have urged businesses to increase breeding farms, the Norwegian broadcaster NRK reports.

The Mayor of Lurøy, Lynne Skjæran, told other mayors from Helgeland that the region has some amazing seas which were ideal for fish farming, but added it was important not to damage the environment.
