Matorka's Grindavik site
Matorka is building a new land based, 3000 ton multi specie aquaculture station in Grindavik. Grindavik is strategically located close to the Keflavik International Airport, and is only a 35 minute drive from the capital city of Reykjavik.
Utilizing the latest of designs, integrating top of the line aquaculture systems and innovative technologies, the new site creates a sustainable healthy ecosystem for commercial production purposes.
The new station uses an innovative circular model, which is based on a new and revolutionary method of recirculating water and organic materials between fish species of various water temperatures and integrates Omega3 producing algae propagation units. This in unison with our waste and effluent water reuse creates an environmentally friendly and sustainable process, which is a first of its kind in world aquaculture.
