20/07/2015: Troms-Arctic knowledge

Troms County has taken the initiative to present the aquaculture industry in the county at this year’s Aqua Nor. The objective is to create more visibility, improve cooperation and increase the spreading effects of the industry in the county.

The objective of the joint 'Troms – Arctic Knowledge' stand is to stimulate cooperation and increase visibility of the participants vis-a-vis customers and cooperating partners, and to strengthen network building among the various actors in Troms County. The marine know-how company SALT and Project Manager Kjersti Eline Tønnessen Busch are charged with planning, coordinating and implementation of the Troms County stand.

Debates and dialogues
On Wednesday 19th of August from 13:00 hrs the stand invites interested parties to an open seminar, followed by discussions, on environment-based area regulations and growth in the aquaculture industry. The debate will focus on growth in the industry related to:

  • The industry’s reputation and local value creation along the coast
  • The municipalities’ ability to make enough space available
  • Equal treatment of small, medium and large companies
  • The environmental and other interests in the coastal zone
"We are looking forward to an exciting dialogue, and we are especially happy that Minister of Fisheries Elisabeth Aspaker, who used to be Deputy County Mayor of Troms County, and who has been appointed Governor of the County, will give the keynote presentation focusing on the new management regime for the aquaculture industry,” comments Gunnar Davidsson, department head in the County administration, and responsible for the project.
