  16        Finnmark         Finnmark is in the northernmost part of         Continental Europe, where norway         swings eastward. in the midst of         wild and majestic scenery with steep         mountains and icy fjords, the conditions         are ideal for growing healthy fsh of         exceptional quality.         Operations in Finnmark were established in 1978 by  norwegian         fsh-farming pioneer  harald  volden.  in 2006 the  volden Group         merged with Grieg Seafood and was renamed Grieg Seafood         Finnmark.         Grieg Seafood Finnmark now includes a smolt hatchery and 24         licensed sites, complete with harvesting and freezing facilities at                                                 STRaTEGy > >         four clusters in different regions of Western Finnmark. The distance         between production clusters forms a natural barrier to the transfer         of disease and therefore represents a lower overall biological risk         in Finnmark.         Grieg Seafood Finnmark owns and operates the northernmost fsh         farm in the world, close to the north Cape. Our facilities in Finnmark         enjoy the shortest export route to Russia in norwegian fsh farming,         including the major cities of moscow and St. petersburg. most of         our production is exported to the EU, Russia and asia.         The company employs about 190 people.
