AquaDome launched in sea, Dirdal February 2011. A prototype of AquaDome® of 10m in diameter and 5 m deep was put into production and benchmarked against a nearby referencefarm. The IFU project in Dirdal was completed in April 2012 and the report " Test of the closed cage system Aqua Dome ® for big scale fish farming of Atlantic Salmon," Ewos Innovation, recaptured the results of the test.
