Danish Salmon's aquaculture facility is located in Hirtshals, Denmark. Through state of the art technology, Danish Salmon is rearing environmentally sustainable Atlantic Salmon of supreme quality and superior taste.






" Danish Salmon has two objectives with regards to aquaculture. One is protecting our environment, the other is sustainable production of Atlantic Salmon  "




Environmental impacts from aquaculture is currently beeing raised as a topic of serious concern. Danish Salmon wants to confront this concern by making sure that the future of salmon aquaculture is green! By employing our production methods and cleaning up after ourselves, we are preventing damages to our oceans and other surroundings.

Using a fully recirculated aquaculture system enables us to recycle water resources. Moreover employing our methods enables us to remove solid waste from production and safely dispose of this – actually making good use of it in other farming industries. As follows, Danish Salmon is avoiding exploitation of natural water resources. Moreover we are seeing to that no harm is being done to our seabeds - protecting our nature as a whole.



Salmon aquaculture has brought along major concerns with regards to the remaining wild salmon population. Danish Salmon is also confronting these concerns and taking threats against wild stock salmonids out of the equation. Farming Atlantic Salmon, on land, within a closed recirculated system (RAS), eliminates threats against wild life completely. No pathogens and disease transfer!

Spreading diseases into the wild is no longer a concern and affecting the life cycle of wild salmonids is off the table. Concerns about overfishing are also being dealt with in a responsible manner. Finally we can create a stable platform for the future of Atlantic Salmon aquaculture, and aquaculture in general.





" Traceability is a key tool for ensuring sustainable aquaculture. Being able to trace the product enables consumers to make responsible choices, supporting their beliefs regarding sustainable aquaculture "



Danish Salmon is carrying out strict control with suppliers. Suppliers must meet high standards with regards to environmentally correct and sustainable activities. Suppliers must be able to show compliance through third-party evidence and operate a transparent business. This way, Danish Salmon can be assured that no environmental issues are handled carelessly by any of its suppliers.




Danish Salmon has a huge responsibility with regards to traceability. We control what comes in and what goes out. Activities at Danish Salmon which ensure our part in the total traceability and transparency scheme include: strict invoice system – making sure that input matches output, recording salmon-batches and their way through production, several fish counts, public available reports and much more.

Through the use of our own Smolt supply, we are furthermore minimizing risks for traceability issues. Having our own supply for grow-out allows for detailed monitoring, making sure that downstream partners are as informed as possible.




Processors, distributors, etc. are equipped with detailed information about the product, making sure that every shipment is traceable in all aspects of the product. This makes for a product life span that is fully transparent, and worthy of trust with regards to traceable and sustainable aquaculture. In the end customers are able to recognize and support this process, by relying on the brand that is Danish Salmon.


In total Danish Salmon not only makes sure that Atlantic Salmon aquaculture has a sustainable way of production. Danish Salmon also ensures that all stakeholders are able to support this way of production, by providing information about critical aspects of the supply chain.
