Fish hatcheries

Where natural recruitment of fish is not possible, Statkraft is stocking fish from its six hatcheries.

We are the largest operator of wild fish hatcheries in Norway. Together with the Norwegian Environmental Agency, we manage a gene bank at Bjerka in Northern Norway to preserve the unique genetic material of five different wild salmon species from 188 distinct sources. In the river basins of Surna, Suldalslågen, Ulla and Skien, we have agreements with local fishing associations to catch adult salmon ready to spawn, so that their roe and milt can replenish our hatcheries.
