Offshore salmon farm plan backed by industrial group

Moreld Aqua has entered into a commercial agreement with salmon and trout farmer Erko Seafood for the further design and construction of the GM Aqua offshore farm, based on a design developed by Global Maritime and promoted by Erko.

Erko has previously been refused permits for the development concept, but has appealed, and an application for seven permits has been defined by Norway’s Fisheries Directorate to be “within the scheme”, although there are ongoing clarifications. If Erko is granted seven permits that would allow it to grow 5,760 tonnes of fish.
