Norwegian visitor centre tells salmon’s story
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.
