This paper presents a case study of a structure of a novel fish farm cage. The “AquaTraz” cage is more similar to structures known to the the oil and gas industry. The cage has the same shape as the normal cages used in the aquaculture industry and can be introduced to existing grid-moorings.
Model testing has been carried out and results from the model test are compared with results from numerical simulations using the tool AquaSim. The response deviating from classic fish farms is shown and what extra considerations that should be carried out for this type of systems compared to classic fish farms is discussed.
