Fantastic!!

Here I got all my question answered about salmon and other fish farming in Norway.

Highly informative and dedicated tour. It was not white-washing of the problematic aspects but looking for solutions to them.

The salmon , trout and minke whale tasting was nice. The price for first class smoked salmon was an absolute bargain compared to supermarkets and elsewhere in Europe. So make sure to buy there.
