The Norwegian Aquaculture Centre is beautifully situated by Toftsundet. The actual fish farm is reached by a gangway from the shore. This is the place to learn more about the fascinating life cycle of salmon, and the pioneering work that made Norwegian aquaculture such an international success.
The success story of salmon farming
Knowledgeable guides will lead you on a journey through the many chapters of modern fish farming, and the story’s environmental context. The tour makes use of mini-aquariums as well as underwater cameras. You will witness feeding, hear about the development of salmon from fertilised fish egg to sexual maturity, and see how it is cared for during the various stages of its life. Naturally you are welcome to visit at any time of the year.
The centre also has an indoor exhibition that documents the history of Norway’s aquaculture industry and sheds light on some local history. There is also a restaurant that features a menu based on local ingredients. The Aquaculture Centre can offer tailor-made visitor programmes for you and your friends.
