This web site provides public information about the ClosedFishCage project. The project was initiated by the coordinator, Plast-sveis AS, and funded by EU’s FP7 – Research for SMEs.
Official start date of the project was on September 1st, 2009. The duration of the project is 24 months.
ClosedFishCage will focus on the development of a closed, escape proof, constant volume, sea-based cage for fish farming. Among the project’s innovative elements are a very durable and flexible polymer plastic net pen, a predator guard, a control system, easy set-up and replacement of damaged cage parts. The technological solutions involved in the sea-based cage will preserve advantages of land-based fish farming while at the same time taking advantage of the cost efficiency of seabased fish farming.
