Until recently, land-based salmon farming was not considered a viable alternative to conventional methods of salmon production. With netpens offering a lower-cost alternative, high capital investments required to get land-based systems up and running, and high risks of losses, major aquaculture companies and investors alike have shied away from the segment.
That’s changed dramatically. With advances in technology and limitations on growth in the salmon farming sector, investors have thrown themselves into the industry -- some might say a little too quickly. But with more companies announcing plans, successful listings on the stock exchange and a growing appetite for farmed salmon, the industry has now become on of the most exciting in the aquaculture space.
IntraFish hosted a panel of land-based experts to discuss and debate the future of the industry, and how it could revolutionize the salmon supply chain, and the seafood sector itself.
