Aquabest organized a field trip to potential offshore sites for fish farming in Finnish coastline

In large scale, the sustainable growth of fish farming is likely to happen in exposed marine areas. In Baltic, however, the production conditions in offshore areas are especially challenging.

The production equipment should be robust enough to handle the many meters waves, but still, the production solutions should be flexible to for example move the equipment to sheltered sites against ice.

Aquabest organized a field trip to potential offshore sites in Finnish coastline to evaluate what kind of solutions would be possible in detailed places in Bothnia bay and North Archipelago Sea. In both sites the wind can strengthen the waves all away from Swedish coastline.
