The world's leading suppliers of land-based salmon farming equipment are being peppered with inquiries from prospective buyers, but as of yet experience and capital are holding the sector back.

"Not a week goes by where we don't get a request from Norway or other countries for pricing to construct a land-based project," Marius Haegh, sales director at Kruger Kaldnes, told IntraFish.

Land-based production was discussed at a conference Tuesday in Oslo, Norway sponsored by research group Sintef.
