Have you ever visited a floating fish farm? We promise a fascinating experience for anyone interested in Norway’s famous seafood. Imagine the sea boiling as 100,000 feisty trout fight over breakfast! The tour starts in what once was an old saltery, with a photographic introduction to the life of a fish. Then there’s a trip in an open boat to the floating farm, where you’ll enjoy a guided tour of the modern, full-scale commercial operation. You’ll gain insight into the operation through an exhibition of installations, diagrams and films. If there’s anything you’re wondering about, someone at the facility will be happy to quench your curiosity. How did do the fish get here? What do the fish eat each day? How big are they, and when will they be ready to eat? You can wander along the suspended walkways between the cages and ponder how many dinners there are in the dark depths of the tanks. Is it really true that this single farm produces more food than all the cattle farms in Argentina? Find the answers at the salmon centre whilst also getting a taste of oygarden’s interesting coastal culture and history. At the Coastal Museum you can learn about the history of resources in oygarden over the past 10,000 years. If you want to extend your stay, enjoy a ride on an ocean safari in the open sea beyond oygarden. The boat can accommodate up to 12 passengers. FACILITIES A spectacular ocean safari on a 13 seater speed boat. Cafe at the Coastal Museum serving different varieties of salmon and trout. A meeting room is available for hire at the Salmon Centre.

The Øygarden Salmon Center is offered in tandem with the Coastal Museum. You can by tickets separately for the two sites or one discount combination ticket. The weather that day was excellent and we had a fun time with Robert and his charming son Issac....More
