Nova Sea AS is one of the largest producers of atlantic farmed salmon in Northern Norway. We have 33,33 fully owned and 4 partially owned farming authorizations. We farm salmon along the coast of Helgeland – surrounded by cold fresh waters, wild and beautiful nature. In other words; perfect conditions for salmon production! A Norwegian Industry Fairytail Growth and Innovation for Over 40 Years In a seaplane, packed in plastic bags with water, the first salmon arrived at Lovund. It arrived in July 1972 and the obstacles were many in the first years and only 174 of the first 1200 young fish survived! Researchers were in doubt, but founder Steinar Olaisen had strong faith in the project. Together with his two closest friends, he worked day in and day out with countless experiments and trials. His motivation was first and foremost the wish to reverse the trend of depopulation and a strong depression in local trade and industry. Local fishing industries were struggling, and there was little optimism amongst the population of the island community. Today of course, the rewards of the years of struggle are easy to see. Optimism is in full bloom!
