For Aqua Nor 2019 we have made an excursion to Hitra – the cradle of salmon farming. Take the express boat to the island Hitra, a beautiful boat trip of 1 hour and 40 minutes from Trondheim. You arrive at the express boat terminal at Sandstad. Here you will be equipped and are ready to go out on the ocean by rib-boat to visit a fish farm. Together with the Coastal Museum’s guide, you visit both the hatchery, the food station and the edge of the cages where the salmon is jumping. You get an insight into all aspects of Norwegian salmon farming. We prepare for you a small bag of some local snacks to eat along the way.
Afterwords you will be invited to taste the gold that we find in the ocean around Hitra. At Ansnes Brygger you will be served the best and freshest seafood there is. The table is set for a seafood bonanza with oysters, scallops, langoustines and crab.
Before you are seated you join a beer tasting with the beer that is brewed right here at Ansnes Brygger. During the dinner there will be some storytelling about Hitra – the island, the history, the municipality of today.
After some delicious hours with focus around the seafood you will be transported back to the terminal. You take the express boat back to Trondheim, arriving at 8:00 p.m. Just in time for planned Aqua Nor gatherings or an informal evening with colleagues.
Alocal guide will be there for you during the visit at Hitra.
