Taking fish farming to the offshore environment brings the need for new rules and regulations. Thus far, fish farming has not been exposed to large structures, large forces, or exposed areas. These larger offshore constructions also need a different manning and safety focus. Therefore, the current fish farm regulations may have gaps when dealing with this uncharted offshore territory.
By combining practices from various industries - oil & gas, maritime, and aquaculture - a new set of regulations has been introduced. Global Maritime has actively developed these regulations in collaboration with the Norwegian government, class societies, customers, and the industry. GM’s understanding of these regulations is vital for project success.
