    Purecod gets world’s first closed-pen cod farming license

    The farm will be in Norway.

    The County Municipality of Møre and Romsdal (Møre og Romsdal fylkeskommune) has granted Purecod AS a license to farm cod in closed pens in Røneset, Storfjorden, Norway. The permit is the first of its class and allows them to farm Atlantic cod in closed pens with a maximum standing biomass allowance of 3,120 tons. This license eases the way for Purecod to become the world’s first cod farmer using closed pens, which significantly reduce emissions.
