Norsk Fiskeoppdrett (= Norwegian Fish Farming) was founded in 1976 by Olav Hanssen, the first editor. He got the idea while he was working as a consultant at the Directorate of Fisheries in Bergen, Norway. He was responsible for information towards the fish farming pioneers. Since then Norsk Fiskeoppdrett has been one of the most important publishers of news and scientific based articles in the Norwegian aquaculture business. During the last 20 years, approximately 1000 articles have been published in Norsk Fiskeoppdrett each year. The magasin is published monthly with 2-3 extra issues per year.
