Benchmark Genetics is a world-leader in breeding and genetics for aquaculture.
By combining our long-established breeding programs and the latest genomic tools, we help aquaculture producers increase quality, yield, health, and animal welfare.
Our in-house breeding programs include Atlantic salmon, vannamei shrimp and tilapia. We also support a significant number of selected breeding programs across the world for commercial species such as sea bass, sea bream, rainbow trout, and coho salmon.
Our innovation – your benefit
Our goal is to be a recognized technology leader through our groundbreaking solutions and superior products. Innovation is at the heart of what we do. We use our industry insights, R&D and technological expertise to maintain a focused pipeline.
Our international team of more than 20 recognized researchers and geneticists share knowledge, experience and technology across genetic programs and geographical boundaries. This way we obtain the enhancement of genetic gains and solve local biological challenges, while at the same time increasing productivity in salmonids and other farmed aquatic species.
The success of our breeding programs for different species in various markets relies on applying world-class science to the needs and expectations at a local level. R&D projects that develops technology for one species and geographic region may provide an opportunity for application for others. Benchmark’s customers in Atlantic salmon benefit from the sharing of technology across our teams in Europe and Chile.
To ensure our position as a leading provider of genetics and genetic services, we need to be at the forefront of the developments within R&D. This implies research partnerships and project participation with world-leading research institutions. Currently, Benchmark Genetics is collaborating with Nofima, The University of Iceland, The Marine Research Institute, Danish Technological Institute, and The Roslin Institute.
