Val Akva

Val Akva run a commercial fish farm, producing about 700 mt of salmon each year. We are also joint owner in a musselfarm, Follaskjell, harvesting about 100 mt of mussels in 2004. Val Akva is a division under Val Videregående Skole.
Val Videregående Skole is a school that gives courses in Aquaculture and Agriculture on the Upper Secondary level. The 90-100 students are mainly recruited from the mid part of Norway. The main focus of the school is teaching, Research and Development, and in addition, both the full-scale fish farm and the farm owned by the school is run on a commercial basis. Through this we are able to give our students a education with strong focus on praxis in a strong link to the theory.

Val co-operate widely with the aquaculture and agriculture industries, both in our own region and more nationwide companies. The school is owned by a Christian organization, Nork Luthersk Misjonssamband.
