Trøndelag County Authority has granted Kvidul AS an aquaculture permit for Brennholmen

It marks a major milestone for the company, which was founded in 2018.

In April 2022, Kvidul applied for an aquaculture permit for the production of 10 million smolts up to 560 grams and 20,000 tonnes of harvested salmon at Brennholmen, in Åfjord municipality. The requested biomass was 2,500 tonnes for the smolt and 13,000 tonnes for the harvested fish.

After the public sector authorities involved have reviewed and given their respective decisions on the application, Trøndelag County Authority approved the application for an aquaculture permit, valid from 22 December 2022.

“We are very pleased with the county authority's decision and look forward to start the detailed design and construction of the facility at Brennholmen. The plant will be the first for the production of harvested fish from salmon on land in Trøndelag,” said the company in a press release.
