Abstract

A new form of offshore aquaculture is currently under development in Norway. This article argues for an ecosystem-based development of this future supply chain rooted in experiences in petroleum logistics, aquaculture and cold chains. A conceptual model provides basis for further research to facilitate designing this form of supply chain as a sustainable system.
