Farmed salmon that escape are one of the biggest environmental challenges facing the Norwegian aquaculture industry. That is because some of the escaped fish manage to spawn with wild salmon, affecting the genetic makeup of wild populations.
Farmed fish are Norway’s most important farm animals. Each year, over 350 million salmon and rainbow trout are put out in fish cages in the sea.
