Sustainable industry

Seafood is a key part of the solution to how to feed a growing population on a planet that is already stressed in terms of climate change and biodiversity. However, the industry’s potential for growth depends on further reducing its environmental and biological footprint, as well as other ESG related risks, such as fish welfare, pollution and salmon lice.
