When he took over as interim CEO a month ago, Trond Håkon Schaug-Pettersen claimed that the first harvest would be the “proof of concept demonstrated” of Salmon Evolution. At the harvest announcement, just 15 days later, he repeated the same message but already took it for granted. “In just 7 months we have grown our salmon from 300 grams to harvest weight. Demonstrating proof of concept as to our approach to land-based salmon farming”, he said. WeAreAquaculture spoke with him to learn more about this concept and why this first harvest is proof that it does indeed work.

"All the assumptions we had going into this project are absolutely realistic", says Trond Håkon Schaug-Pettersen, interim CEO after the company's first harvest.
