First constructions of Härjanurme fish farm were already made in 1976 and its expansion is still an ongoing process today.
The fish farm has been successful for many years and one of the reasons is its good location. It is situated on the banks of river Pedja, where previously has also been a hydropower plant. The difference in heights create prerequisites for natural water exchange, because of which there is no need for additional water pumps, generators and substations.
Throughout the years the fish farm has developed into a place that due to its diversity is a home for many different speices of fish.
