Fish on FIFAXRainbow trout fingerlings have now been delivered to the largest land based fish farm in Finland set to produce 3200 tons per year.
The fish will grow to a size of 2 kilo before they are harvested, which is expected to take around 1 year from the fingerling stage. The output will be a consistent supply of freshly farmed fish to serve customers every day of the year.
The complete recirculation system is delivered by AKVA group Denmark, and construction is on-going. The complete farm consists of 36 large grow-out tanks together with hatchery and fry system, all covered with a fully insulated building of 15.000 m2. Internal water flow will be continuously treated and discharged fish manure will be used in a biogas plant producing electricity. Waste from the fish slaughter processing will also be used in biogas production.
