The display and the exhibition

The exhibition takes you from farming as it once started to the modern operation today. The salmon's life cycle, sustainable development, footprint and future are some of the topics taught.

How to get here

The display facility is located in Fitjarøyane north of Engesund and is located by the breeding facility on the west side of Dyrholmen. Since this is a food fishery located on the sea, you need a boat to get there. You can either bring your own boat, or we can pick up a diver in one of our boats. The trip in itself is an experience, and you get close to the sea and nature in the beautiful archipelago outside Fitjar.

If you are going to Engesund Fiskeopdrett Visningsenter by road, you drive to the center of Fitjar. Fitjar is 10 minutes from the E39 at Sandvikvåg and 30 minutes from Leirvik south of Stord, midway between Bergen and Haugesund. There is therefore good access both from the south and the north along the road. On special occasions, we can pick up from places other than Fitjar, for example it is a short distance across to Austevoll and Bømlo via the sea route. For transport, we have to make some delays due to the weather.
