The company started in 2003, when Huutokoski’s first recirculating aquaculture module was produced. Finnforel was the crystallisation of all of the above. A project to construct a large-scale recirculating aquaculture plant was launched in 2015, when Kaj Arvonen, a pioneer in recirculating aquaculture, Pekka Viljakainen, who loves technology, entrepreneurship and Savonia, and Petri Heino, who knows everything about the fish markets, joined forces.
The first step was to design the ideal production plant to be built in Varkaus and define its production capacity and operating principles. The next step was to invite three more experts to join the team: Pekka Hannelin, an expert in fish farming, Jarkko Alho, an expert in fish processing and the fish trade, and Jyrki Sukula, an expert in the consumption of fish.
The team began work on developing a three-stage fish farming chain. First, juvenile fish are produced from eggs in Hollola. The juveniles are then transferred to Huutokoski, where they are introduced to the recirculating aquaculture environment and allowed to grow. Finally, the fish are transferred to Varkaus, where over a million kilos of rainbow trout a year are produced in optimal conditions.
The feeding process for the fish is based on a biological mathematical energy demand model that is integrated into the system. Since fish are variable temperature animals, their energy demand is directly linked to temperature. Our smart system measures the conditions and provides the fish with exactly the amount of feed that they need. At this stage, three more team members enter the picture, Jari-Matti, Ossi-Oskari and Aleksei, who make sure that every link in the chain is strong.
The final result of all this finely tuned science and pioneering R&D work is the fresh, clean and healthy Finnish fish that you have on your plate. Saimaan Tuore’s athletic rainbow trout fillet!
