SUSTAINABLE AQUACULTURE


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


 

ENVIRONMENT

GREEN & CLEAN

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.

 




SUSTAINABILITY

NO SEA-LICE, NO ESCAPES
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.

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.
