Blue Vision – Salmon viewing center
Here you can learn about salmon and how it’s produced. Aquaculture in Norway is constantly evolving and we tell through teaching programs, guiding, interactive screens and live images from our facilities how the industry works.
We are located on the 2nd floor on Kystens Hus in Tromsø centrum.
The center is open Monday-Friday from 10:00-16:00, but we accept agreed visits outside the opening hours.
The viewing center is divided into two zones, one of which consists of interactive screens with information, pictures, films and games for children. The second zone is a control room where we have live images from our facilities at sea.

- The importance of the aquaculture industry for coastal communities
