Iceland

Salmon

Overview

Our Icelandic operations consist of three land-based units producing families, broodstock and ova for the global Atlantic Salmon industry.

All-year-round supplies form biosecure sites

Due to our unique locations on the South-West coast of Iceland we can produce salmon ova all year round, with the highest levels of biosecurity. The water is pumped from deep drilled wells and rinsed through lava sands using 100% renewable energy. This creates a good starting point for a sustainable salmon life-cycle. Continuous research, selective breeding and excellent production conditions give the best basis for delivering high-quality ova.
