Aquaculture technology company AKVA group (AKVA) announced on Friday that it has reached an agreement with Norwegian seafood company SinkabergHansen over the sale of shares in Atlantis Subsea Farming (ASF). 

In 2018, ASF was given a development license from the Norwegian Directorate of Fisheries for a submersible cages concept.

The Directorate of Fisheries subsequently decided the development license could be converted into an ordinary operating licence.
