Strömstad will be the home of the academy. It was from here that Sweden’s first commercial shrimp trawler departed at the beginning of the last century. Today the industry is worth more than 100 million kronor a year.
The academy will be inaugurated on the Shrimp Day, July 21st. The board of the academy will consist of 12 people. The patron will be the celebrity restaurateur Carl-Jan Granqvist.
