Sustainable production of food

Kvidul will be the fish farming company of the future due to its commitment to a sustainable food supply. We combine an emphasis on innovation, sustainability, and operational excellence.


Traditional sea-based farming faces increasing environmental, biological, and geographical challenges. Local environmental pollution has reached unacceptable levels, and wild fish are exposed to diseases. Meanwhile, waste and excrement from open cages have a negative impact on the fjords’ seafloor. Plus, it is difficult to maintain fish welfare when lice pose a significant hurdle. These obstacles contribute to the limited growth prospects for traditional sea-based farming.

Kvidul will operate the future production of seafood in closed fish farms on land. We will achieve sustainable food production with the best fish welfare.

Solutions - Healthy fish

In a closed facility, we have control over the fish’s health. We can give the fish the best possible water quality. We avoid problems with lice. We prevent the spread of diseases.

Better fish health – premium quality

Solutions - environment

In a closed facility, we have control over emissions and waste. With the latest technology in water purification, RAS, and sludge treatment, we will purify all discharged water to avoid polluting the fjords with chemical and biological waste. Waste from production will be used for energy and plant production. Kvidul will enforce the principle of zero emissions with our green value chain.

Better environment – better future
Kvidul’s first fish farm will be built on Brennholmen in Åfjord municipality. Work is being done on other locations in the region to establish more land-based facilities.
A detailed zoning plan has been approved. The first plant is scheduled for production in the first half of 2024.
The facility is located near the shipping lane through Stokksundet, where, among other things, Hurtigruten has daily passages.
We have developed a unique concept for the fish farm on Brennholmen. The plant is planned for an annual production of 10 million smolts and 20,000 tons of edible fish with an average weight of 5 kg. A detailed zoning plan has been approved, and an agreement on the land acquisition has been entered.
The development of Brennholmen in Åfjord municipality is planned to be developed in 2 phases. Phase 1 includes producing 10,000 tons of edible fish and 10 million smolts, and phase 2 is designed with an additional 10,000 tons of edible fish.
The land-based fish farm will be well sheltered behind natural elements in the skerries. This is how we take the environment and nature into account. The picture shows the view from the bridge on the Hurtigruten towards the facility.
