Our vision is to be a pioneer in sustainable fish farming. We strive to create good food, produced close to the source. We apply strict strategic sustainability requirements to our production facilities and processes. Our goal is to minimise pollution.
The ultra-intensive RAS method used in our operations is designed to significantly reduce environmental impact compared to traditional fish farming methods. Our solution is based on an almost completely closed loop implementation.
The water is continuously recycled and purified, which means the amount of new water to be added remains extremely small. In addition, water fed to the production facility is filtered and treated before it enters the system, to prevent potential bacteria, viruses, pathogens and other harmful substances from entering with it. The water quality of the fish tanks is constantly monitored. Our sustainable fish-farming method is significantly less harmful to the environment than traditional methods. Our emissions in proportion to our production volume are roughly one hundredth compared with traditional aquaculture methods.
Our production plant is located in Åland, in close proximity to our key markets in Finland and Sweden. Through the ports nearby, we acquire the materials and supplies needed for our production. Our location also supports our ability to conduct our business sustainably and reliably.
Fish welfare and health are at the heart of our business. To ensure them, we have developed versatile solutions that support the production method we use. The recirculating aquaculture method allows fish to grow under optimal conditions. Temperature and oxygen levels can be adjusted at any time to improve their growth and well-being. The amount of impurities are frequently monitored in the tanks. Solids are continuously collected and removed from the tanks, which are regularly cleaned during the process.
In the RAS system, the constant flow of water creates a stimulating habitat for fish, and in purified water, they rarely, if ever, suffer from harmful bacteria, parasites, or viruses. Our cleaning processes stops contaminants and pathogens. This enables us to produce antibiotic-free fish without any pesticides or hormones.
Land-based fish farming does not harm wild fish stock. Compared to conventional fish-farming methods, our method prevents harmful effects to the wild fish stock and to the marine environment.
The recirculating aquaculture method is currently considered one of the most sustainable and environmentally conscious forms of aquaculture, and helps to reduce emissions from fish farming. The efficient water treatment in land-based production result in lower phosphorus and nitrogen emissions. Waste and other by-products can also be collected, processed, and utilised, for example, as fertilisers and raw material, which reduces the burden on water bodies.
All electricity required for our production is created with renewable wind energy.
Sustainable food production is key to resolving the global climate crisis. Through our activities, we contribute to many of the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals by supporting healthy living and well-being, in an industry that is focused on responsible manufacturing. We emphasise sustainable methods in our production, as a necessary response to reduce the carbon footprint and environmental impact of animal-protein production, as well as to promote the protection of the seas and the sustainable use of their resources.
