First Ocean fish farm raising 1.5 million salmon three miles off Norway

•, by brian wang

The first pilot system is 67 meters (220 feet high) and a diameter of 110 meters (football field length). It has the volume of over two hundred Olympic swimming pools. The pilot system can withstand 50 foot (15 meter) waves.

Movable, submerged valves disperse food to allow fish to live at depths instead of clustering near the surface for feeding. The ocean current helps clear out the waste to keep low mortality and healthier fish.
