Photograph by George Steinmetz @geosteinmetz Aerial view of salmon farm near Ålesund, Norway with 200,000 atlantic salmon in each of eight pens. The fish are fed from the barge seen at lower left via pneumatic tubes that spray pellets of fish meal, fish oil, and soy beans into the water. No antibiotics are used, but some colorants are added to the food to give their flesh the orange color typical of wild salmon. The fish average 18 months in the pens and gain approximately 1 kg of body weight for every 1 kg of food. The fjord is approx 70m deep below the pens, allowing the fish excrement to become widely distributed with the tidal action. To see more of our food supply go to @feedtheplanet
