Norwegian cod-farmer Norcod has been granted permission to establish a new production location in northern Norway.

The new site will be located in the Nesna municipality and have a maximum allowed biomass (MAB) of 3,600 metric ton. It is expected to begin production in the first half of 2023.

“The site is perfectly suited for cod farming with good water depth, water temperature and current conditions,” Norcod CEO Christian Riber said.
