Aqua Technology is an industry cluster that can deliver the whole stack of technology to the aquaculture industry.
The Stavanger area has some of the worlds foremost technology companies in the fields of offshore and aquaculture. Aqua Technology aims to combine lessons from the oil and gas industry into the aquaculture business.
In March 2016, Rogaland Regional Council, Blue Planet, The University of Stavanger and Greater Stavanger invited technology companies in the Stavanger area to a gathering for technology companies that wanted to explore opportunities in the aquaculture industry, with the goal of creating an arena where companies from both sector could find new ideas and projects for a growing industry.
In the aftermath of the pre-project, 16 companies formalised a closer cooperation by establishing what is now established as the Aqua Technology cluster.
