Currently, traditional net pens that are located on the coast or in a fjord, are the standard for the aquaculture industry. They sit in a stable environment, and turn-key solutions are used. These systems are time proven, and are easy to install and moor. However, these systems are harmful to the local environment and are very susceptible to disease. These effects are costly and can be long-term.
An offshore fish farming solution can solve these issues, as well as greatly increase capacity and output. All it requires is innovation, analysis, and engineering.
