Biggest salmon producer wants to farm fish inside cargo ship
MetadataShow full item record
The world’s biggest Atlantic salmon producer wants to start farming fish inside a ship rather than the sea. Building traditional fish farms on the open water in Norway has become almost impossible because of state rules intended to curb outbreaks of sea lice, a parasite that can kill young fish. So raising salmon inside an unwanted cargo ship is one of a few options proposed by Marine Harvest ASA, which is trying to boost production at a time when prices are near a record high.
