The ambition of Nekst is to become a sizeable, integrated producer of Atlantic salmon.

The company has developed a concept for a new land-based hatchery in Florø with a capacity of around 20,000 tons and a seamless integration with an offshore-based operation to produce around 24,000 tons of harvest-sized salmon. Nekst believes a shorter production cycle in sea will reduce biological issues and significantly improve the production turn-over per license. The Nekst technology will be directly transferable to an international market in the future.
