On-growing farm located in Öxarfjörður in the north-east of Iceland. The farm is ideally situated in an area very rich in geothermal water, close to the sea. Many boreholes on site and the access to seawater make it possible to use different water temperatures and salinities in different tanks at the same time. Silfurstjarnan was one of the first Arctic Charr farms in Iceland and is a pioneer in the farming of new species. The fish is farmed in land-based tanks, not only outdoors but also in a newly built 5.000 m2 indoor facilities.silfurstj_net011_400
