What is an aquaculture visitor centre?

We have developed the aquaculture visitor centres to provide more insight and knowledge about the aquaculture business, a growing industry. There are over 20 visitor centres along the Norwegian coastline. These centres are open to the public, for visitors who want to learn more about the breeding of salmon and trout.

Storeblå is one of these visitor centres and is a collaboration between the seafood producer Lerøy, who holds the viewing license and is financing the project, and the Norwegian Fisheries Museum, who is responsible for operations and presentation to the public. The location of the visitor centre nearby the Norwegian Fisheries Museum in Sandviken makes this the only visitor centre with such a central location, in Bergen, the second largest city in Norway.

What is a view licence? ​

To improve the knowledge regarding mariculture in the public, the Directorate of Fisheries the possibility of giving so called viewing licences. These are permits free of charge for breeding of salmon, trout and rainbow trout for viewing purposes. 

The visitor Centre Storeblå is a result of Lerøy Seafood being given a viewing licence and is a collaboration project between Learøy Seafood and The Norwegian Fisheries Museum.

The goal of Storeblå is to give the public more knowledge about the mariculture industry and what is means for you and the rest of the world. Lerøy has financed the project and the Norwegian Fisheries Museum is responable for the operation and independent information to the public.
