    Join the salmon safari!Experience why Norwegian Salmon is the best in the world

    The salMOn rOe is only a few millime-tres, and yet it is still big enough to create one of Norways most important industries. Did you know that Norwegian salmon is en-joyed by 12 million people in more than 100 countries every day? The Norwegian Salmon is known for its high quality and great taste, and is Norways most renowned product. Salmon farming also provides opportunities and settlement along the coast of Norway, and is together with fishery the most impor-tant industry in Vesterlen.

    akvakulTur i vesTerlen is a new adventure centre for aquaculture that opened in 2011. At our facility you get to go out to sea and visit our fish farm. In the new exhibitions we give you the story of Norwe-gian aquaculture industry from the early beginning in the 50s and 60s until today with high-tech operation. We have a funny tunnel that kids can crawl through, com-puter games, under water cameras, exciting films and a 12 meters long map made from glass where every light shows where there is fish farming in all of northern Norway.
