Grieg Seafood to evaluate received licenses for offshore salmon farming concept

The company has received 3 development licenses for the offshore concept “Blue Farm”. The company will now evaluate the decision and decide next steps.

In 2016, Grieg Seafood applied for ten development licenses to build the innovative farm and place it in exposed seas in Rogaland in Southern Norway. The concept is based on technology from the Norwegian oil and gas industry, and the aim is to later move the farm to areas offshore.

Monday evening, the Norwegian Directorate of Fisheries granted Grieg Seafood three development licenses to build “Blue Farm”.

Grieg Seafood will thoroughly evaluate the decision, and proceed to decide next steps.
