The industry’s most important meeting place
Since 1979, Aqua Nor has been an important international meeting place for the aquaculture industry. Fish farmers, suppliers, researchers and senior officials from all over the world come to Trondheim for this event. This is where new networks are built and enlarged, be it at the various places in the exhibition area, or out on the town in Trondheim during the evening.
The great festive evening
The Nor-Fishing Foundation each year organizes a great festive evening with a magnificent seafood buffet, as well as entertainment and the presentation of the Innovation Award. This event has become extremely popular and because of limited space, many are now booking their tables early.
Authorities, organizations and private companies alike make use of the opportunity to organize receptions of various kinds, from shrimp parties and buffets to cocktails receptions for foreign visitors. In addition, restaurnats in Trondheim have special offers for the visitors and exhibitors during the week, and the whole town seems to be participating in the Aqua Nor week.
The last of the vikings
While the sun sets over the public, the tarred Lofotboats appears in the dusk and takes over the water in a wanton battle of fish, money and honor. Throughout the history of Krestaver Myran and his crew, the story of the winter fishing in Lofoten appears as lively and full of blood toil as it once was. This is the dramatic story about the battle in the Trollfjord, and of a rescue action that will always stay alive as a proof of bravery and excellent seamanship.
”The last of the vikings” is played in the amphitheater at the museum ”Kystens Arv” in Stadsbygd, Rissa, Norway – August 17. – 27. 2017.
