‘BioFish is located in beautiful Hardanger with an endless supply of fresh air and clean mountain water.’
BioFish AS was established in 2016 after the acquisition of an on-land fish farming facility with a flow through system, located in Kvam Municipality, Hordaland. Since the acquisition, BioFish has upgraded the facility to a recirculating aquaculture system (RAS). Today, we produce smolt (young adult salmon) up to approx. 500 gram and sell them to fish farmers that farm the smolt up to adult size (approx. 5 kg).
BioFish is currently expanding their capacity by developing a new section to the facility that will increase yearly production and sales volume from approx. 150 ton/year up to approx. 2.200 ton/year.
Located in Kvam municipality, along the Hardangerfjord.
Access to both fresh water from nearby lake and saltwater from the fjord.
