The popular seafood item scampi is infamously known for relatively primitive methods of production and high use of antibiotics. The project Pure Prawns from Bergen will establish sustainable production of warm water shrimp (scampi) in Norway. Technology developed for production of Atlantic salmon on land, known as recirculating aquaculture systems (RAS), will be optimized for warm water shrimp production. Production is to done in a closed system on land, which enables good living conditions for the shrimp and secures them from diseases found in traditional production. Pure prawns from Bergen will be offered fresh to customers in the Bergen area in 25 grams size. A sustainable, short-travelled and delicious seafood product.
