Salmon – Salmo Salar; aquaculture Norway

Wild Salmon is extremely rare, that is why farm fish from Norway, Scotland and Ireland are mainly traded here. Salmons are anadromous migrating fish. They use rivers and streams (freshwater) to spawn. After that they return to the ocean (saltwater). The breeder simulate this life cycle of the young. They grow them in fresh water and after one year they´re relocated to sea water.
