Norwegian salmon supplier Kvaroy Arctic, the primary backer behind the Norway's land-based Arctic Seafarm, announced this week it has secured a government permit for its flow-through system. The permit means the company move forward with producing up to 15,000 metric tons of fish annually and employing 50 people.

The land-based salmon farm is being built within the Nesna Industrial Park in Northern Norway, just 30 minutes south of the island of Kvaroy, the main headquarters of the family-owned Kvaroy Arctic.
