About Aqua Nor 2023

Aqua Nor is the world’s largest aquaculture technology showcase and attracts an audience of 25,000 people from 76 countries.

The 2023 event took place in Trondheim, Norway, from 22 to 24 August. The Team Scotland presence at the event was organised and financed by a partnership involving Highlands and Islands Enterprise (HIE), the Sustainable Aquaculture Innovation Centre (SAIC), and the Scottish Government (Marine Directorate).

The Scottish Pavilion included 18 exhibitors on 20 pods, made up of Scotland’s aquaculture supply chain businesses and research institutions, providing an opportunity to showcase innovative products and services.

On the Scottish Pavilion, exhibitors shared access to facilities for presentations, networking and private business meetings. A further 18 Scottish companies joined the wider delegation with their own stands or as visitors to the event. They were promoted in the 'Scotland at Aqua Nor' brochure and attended events and meetings on the Pavilion.
