In 1975 Norway had about 300 fish farmers. About 250 were engaged in rainbow trout production, but 100 of these, particularly the older ones, were more or less out of production. The remaining 50 were culturing Atlantic salmon (see Fig. 3.1). These were the only two cultured fish species grown in Norway. Hence, this chapter is divided into two subparts: one for Atlantic salmon and one for rainbow trout. Most of the cultured fish industry is concentrated in the area north and south of Bergen (see Fig. 3.2). Restricted production in northern Norway is due to difficulties in raising fingerlings in the colder waters.
