Nor­we­gian vis­i­tor cen­tre tells salmon’s story

Fish Farmer - - European News -

OSLO is home to a new salmon vis­i­tor cen­tre, which opened to the pub­lic last month. Spon­sored by Akva and built by salmon farmer Nova Sea, the cen­tre, called The Salmon, aims to tell the his­tory of Nor­we­gian fish farm­ing and spread knowl­edge about salmon and the fish farm­ing in­dus­try in gen­eral.

To pro­vide an in­sight into modern farm­ing op­er­a­tions, Akva has in­stalled a minia­ture con­trol room. Here, real-time video images are trans­ferred from Nova Sea’s lo­ca­tion at Træna in Nord­land County, to give the au­di­ence an idea of how tech­nol­ogy such as cam­eras and sen­sors helps the farmer get the best pos­si­ble un­der­stand­ing of the health and per­for­mance of the fish

The vis­i­tor at­trac­tion, at Tju­vhol­men in Oslo, is open to the pub­lic all week days and Satur­days and en­trance is free.

In ad­di­tion to in­ter­ac­tive dis­plays, the cen­tre of­fers a se­lec­tion of both modern and tra­di­tional salmon dishes.
