Join us on a tour to a fish farm, mon-fri from the Norwegian Fisheries Museum
Did you know that every day 14 million meals of Norwegian salmon are consumed around the world? Fish is one of Norway’s largest export trades – soon to reach a value of over NOK 100 billion per year. This tour gives you insight to how Norwegian salmon is produced: after walking through a modern exhibition about aquaculture at the museum, we bring you out to visit an actual fish farm.
Your experience starts at the Norwegian Fisheries Museum, located in authentic wooden seaside stock fish warehouses from the 1700’s. At the museum your knowledgeable guide will take you through our interactive aquaculture exhibition Fin City. The exhibition shows all aspects of salmon production: from egg, to a finished product ready to be sold to the world!
After this introduction to Norwegian salmon production you are ready to travel to an actual fish farm. A RIB-boat transports you safely to the farm, where you see the production up close. It takes about 40 min. to reach the fish farm, and we spend around 40 minutes at the farm. All in all, an unforgettable trip through a rugged coastal landscape, seasoned with a rush of adrenaline!
