A fjord on land
Fish farming on nature’s terms.
Unlike other Norwegian farmed fish, Glitne halibut spend their whole life on land, in large raceway systems. The pools are built of stones, wood and recyclable material, located right beside the fjord, in harmony with the steep terrain. The halibut swim around in the cold, crystal-clear water, taken from a depth of 100 metres. This water has a stable temperature of 9 degrees Celsius and a salinity of 32 parts per thousand, all year round. The fish thrive in these stable conditions because the cold and salty water of the Sognefjord is the halibut’s natural habitat.
