Tool technology - NYTEK

New technical standard requirements were introduced on 1 January 2012 for floating fish farms and for the main elements included in these farms.

The NYTEK regulation sets out requirements for the design and operation of fish farms. The aim of this is to set standards, improve operating procedures and ensure that the best possible location for the farms can reduce the number of farmed fish escaping.
