Salmon Evolution

We are taking advantage of the best conditions the sea can provide – to farm fish on land. Our location, knowledge and technology form the basis for the sustainable production of 28 000 tonnes of salmon per year.

Norway’s ambition is to almost quadruple its output of farmed salmon up to 2050. We are very confident this target can be met, but it will require a combination of today’s open cages, closed cages, offshore-based cage systems and land-based farms.

Our four directors, who are all shareholders, have between them more than a century of experience and knowledge from farming, processing and sale of salmon, white fish and pelagic species. Combined with a unique location in Fræna local authority, part of Møre og Romsdal county, this forms the basis for sustainable production of 28 000 annual tonnes of fish on land.

We give emphasis to rational operation, fish welfare and as little environmental impact as possible. Clean water from the Norwegian coast creates optimum production and environmental conditions, better growth and shorter time to harvest. The environmental footprint of our operations will be minimised through wastewater treatment and reuse of water and marine resources.

We will be a beacon for sustainable development of quality seafood.

It is not the strongest of the species that survives, nor the most intelligent that survives. It is the one that is most adaptable to change. – Charles Darwin

Board of directors

Our four directors, who are all shareholders, have between them more than a century of experience and knowledge from farming, processing and sale of salmon, white fish and pelagic species.

Their common denominator is a faith in salmon farming on land from 2020, based on their collective expertise and the choice of appropriate technology. They are driven by a commitment to local value creation and to helping create a sustainable seafood nation.

All our owners and founders have several decades of experience from successful fishing and aquaculture companies, including Vikenco, Vikomar, Marine Harvest and Salmar. They have the knowledge and experience needed to make the right choice of technology and operating model.
