Due to ongoing changes in the regulations and standards, it can be challenging for the aquaculture industry to keep updated with the most relevant and recent requirements.
To help in this regard, Åkerblå AS and Aqualine AS have entered into a collaboration agreement, to create a shorter communication-bridge between those who perform the work and the decision makers.
This collaboration allows Åkerblå AS and Aqualine AS to offer the aquaculture industry a ‘total package’ where Aqualine AS undertakes a project leadership role, using Åkerblå AS as a subcontractor. The total package process encompasses ‘from an idea – to installed fish farm with installation / construction certificate’.
There are many steps in this process, some that are more time consuming and some that are not under our control (for example those involving the county administrator or directorate).
