P/F Fiskaaling conducts experimental farming of marine fish species and seaweed in basins on-land. Seawater, that is taken in and used during the process, is sanitized before it’s returned into the ocean, in accordance with existing regulations.
The Aqua Centre in Nesvík consists of land-based basins, in which marine species and seaweed is farmed. Currently, the centre is mainly used in a large project for experimental lumpfish farming. In addition, there are other projects concerning lumpfish biology and welfare.
The Sjódepilin employs 3 carers, 1 technician and one manager, in addition to the involved researchers, who conduct practical studies on site for short or long periods of time.
