PF Fiskaaling (Faroe Islands)
Fiskaaling is a small non-profit company owned by the government. The company was founded in 1972, with the main task to develop aquaculture into an industry in the Faroe Islands. The aquaculture industry is still the motivation for our research and development activity, with focus on the physical and biological interactions between aquaculture and the environment. Fiskaaling is a trusted collaborator in the Faroese aquaculture industry.
Ongoing research projects include establishment and ecological effects of IMTA, benthic impact from fish farming, and ocean dynamics in fjords and at farming sites. Interdisciplinary collaboration between oceanographers, modelers, ocean engineers and marine ecologists is well established, and ensures a comprehensive approach to aquaculture related issues.
