Norway is one of the world’s major exporters of fish and other seafood. Norwegian seafood is consumed daily by about 37 million people worldwide. The cool, clear waters along Norway's northern coastline provide optimal conditions for sustainable and responsible aquaculture. This excursion starts with a short bus tour around the coastal town of Brønnøysund before crossing the city's magnificent bridge and continuing to the Norwegian Aquaculture Center in Toft.
Here you learn about modern aquaculture and the natural environment surrounding the aquaculture facility. Learn about fish development and the technologies necessary to raise fish from egg to harvesting, and see how salmon and cod live at a demonstration fish farm at the center. You can even take part in feeding the fish. You can also try using an underwater camera at an interactive exhibit at the fish farm, and taste freshly harvested salmon.
