- Newly-built, land-based RAS (recirculating aquaculture systems) pilot plant improves growth and keeps salmon healthy
- Uniform light distribution in the tanks suppresses sexual maturation of the salmon and improves harvest size, growth rate and food conversion ratio
Oslo, Norway – Signify installed Philips aquaculture LED lighting to help prevent maturation in the newly-built, land-based RAS (Recirculating aquaculture systems) pilot plant for salmon farming at Havlandet in Florø, Norway. Lighting improvements can stimulate growth and keep the salmon healthy. In the autumn of 2020, INC Group, which owns Havlandet, received 1.5 million euros from Innovation Norway to build a land-based RAS plant, and a license has been granted for an annual production of 200 tonnes. The long-term plan is to build a land-based fish farm with a large-scale production of 20-25,000 tonnes of salmon from 2026.
