The Hima trout that is being developed will be a premium product, originating from the unique Osland trout strain from Høyanger in the Sognefjord. The Osland strain is one of the oldest trout strains in Norway.
The trout is lean and has short muscle fibres which makes it firm and resistant in the fish. It is naturally red in colour, and is originally a freshwater fish.
Hima trout have optimal growth conditions in cold and clean groundwater at Rjukan. The first Hima trout is expected to be on the market in 2024.
