After a successful inaugural harvest early in Q3 2023 and its next smolt restocking not expected until 2025, Norwegian land-based salmon producer Andfjord Salmon is now focusing its attention fully on the construction taking place to expand production at its Kvalnes facility, which should dramatically increase the company’s output capacity, CEO Martin Rasmussen said.
Delivering the company’s Q3 2023 results on 30 November, Rasmussen said he expects the excavation of the site’s next 12 pool pits to be done during Q1 2024, putting it one quarter ahead of schedule.
