We produce genetic starter material; fish eggs with strong genetics that provide a very robust and healthy fish that performs well.
We take care of and refine the Norwegian code - the oldest scientific breeding program for Atlantic salmon and rainbow trout.
Advanced genomics and research on growth, disease resistance, quality, and an increasingly sustainable aquaculture.
Seeds of vitality
Our eggs ensure a responsible, profitable and sustainable production of Atlantic salmon and Rainbow trout. Our products offer good performance and growth among the fish while meeting the strictest of quality requirements for healthy and tasty food.
From science to food plate lies a great responsibility.
The key to reaching many of the Sustainable Development Goals as set out by the UN can be found in the ocean. Through the complete cycle, from science to the food plate, we commit to sustainable value creation on the three-part bottom line; environment, community and economy. Good performance on one of the bottom lines should not come at the cost of lower performance on another. Through safe production and delivery we make sure that all fish farmers always receive genetic starter material that is optimized for fish, people and the environment.

Everything new starts with something small
Everything new starts with something small. A drop. An egg. A seed. An idea. The belief that something small can turn into something much bigger. Something important, that can change the world.
