Regarding this achievement, Einar Wathne, Aquaticode advisor and chairman of the NCE Seafood Innovation Cluster said: “Aquaticode is ready to take a leading role in the blue food revolution.”

Furthermore, Stian Rognlid, Aquaticode’s CEO stated: “We see great interest in our products. The fundraising round and the incoming sales revenue allow us to fulfill the market’s demand for our machines.
