Turn-key project for cod
The delivery includes a feeding barge, pens, nets, mooring systems, cameras, underwater lights, software and feeding systems. “We are happy with the confidence Norcod shows us”, says Geir Erik Bogø, Sales Manager Mid-Norway in ScaleAQ. “Being selected by Norcod shows that a wide expertise in all areas of aquaculture and near complete product portfolio is something that is in demand in the market.
“Norcod will be stocking the first pens on the northern side of Frøya in spring 2020. There is an increase in the demand for fresh cod, while at the same time the wild fish population is under pressure and quotas for catching wild cod are dramatically reduced. This makes it possible for us to produce high quality cod in a sustainable way”, says Tsjipke Deuzeman in Norcod. “ScaleAQ’s local presence and expertise have been crucial for our choice of supplier”.
