The research activity on aquaculture technology takes place on different salmon and seaweed sites, mainly in Mid-Norway. We strive to carry out the experiments at one of SINTEF Ocean's aquaculture licenses (STR-0023, STH-0902 and STF-0903). Main sites are located on Hitra/Frøya.

The full-scale laboratory, SINTEF ACE, is open for research and equipment testing to all parties. The research and experimental focus are mainly on technology for operation activities as well as constructions and environment surveillance. This is based on an interdisciplinary expertise in biology-technology interaction. Here work e.g. biologists with fouling experiments alongside cyberneticists with autonomous vehicles.
