Location and history

Lumarine Tjeldbergodden is located in Tjeldbergodden Biopark in Aure municipality, Møre og Romsdal. The company originated from the former Njord Salmon AS. The company was acquired by Lumarine AS in the summer of 2019. The facility was established in 2011, with the goal of developing a sustainable concept for post-smolt production (large smolt) for producers of fish for consumption. The land and buildings on the facility were formerly used for turbot/halibut landings (1998-2004) and during the major cod fishing period in 2008 to 2011.

  • Past investments (infrastructure and buildings/plants) >NOK 150 million
  • Land set aside for industrial development (Biopark) > 40,000 m2

Production/biology

We currently work on growing ballan wrasse on behalf of an external customer. We receive the fish when they weigh between 0.2-10 grams, and keep them in our production line until they weigh around 30-40 grams, before delivering them back to the customer. The facility has good capacity for this type of growth production.

We are also in the process of establishing facilities for young fish production for cod via a contractual collaboration with Gadus. This first fish delivery under this contract is expected to take place in the summer of 2021.

We also have approval to produce post-smolt from smolt up to a size of 500-700 grams before delivering back to the customer. Our post-smolt production is based on full salinity flow-through (pure sea water).

The facility currently has 13 employees.
