Saithe quality near fish farms documented

It's not only farmed salmon that eat salmon feed. Saithe and other wild fish that search for food in the ocean can be tempted to enjoy an easy meal outside the salmon cage. Here, some of the feed that is fed to the farmed fish gets through the net wall with the water currents and is an easy catch for hungry wild fish.

We are working at Nofima to achieve full control of the environment in which fish live. This enables the full growth potential of the salmon to be realised, and reduces production costs.
