The Benchmarks Genetics Way

Our ambition is to be the forefront of biosecurity in the aquaculture breeding industry

This is our way of understanding and implementing measures:

  • Investing in our sites and people so that we live up to what we say
  • We have invested in biosecure land-sites for production of our breeders, and have the largest on-land capacity for production of broodstock
  • Target risk-based surveillance to maximize the chances of pathogen detection
  • Our fish health personnel work closely across borders to exchange knowledge and competence on fish health-related matters
  • Maintaining a close dialogue with different diagnostics laboratories and research institutions to rapidly implement new technologies and findings into our operations

We are keeping a continuous focus on the health and wellbeing of our animals, safeguarded by our global team of aquatic animal health professionals. I like to say that our real boss is the animals we have in our production. If they don’t perform well, neither will we.

What we offer

Biosecurity is a fundamental criterion for a successful production and was in the top of our considerations when choosing a supplier of genetics to our projected facilities in Maryland, USA. In our opinion, Benchmark Genetics holds the highest levels of biosecurity and thereby an obvious choice for us.
