AquaGen strengthens its expertise in supply chain management
Technological changes in the global aquaculture industry give increased requirements for supply security of eggs. As the leading supplier of eggs and genetics for salmon and rainbow trout production, AquaGen wishes to develop the industry further. Offering genetic starting material for healthy fish, good growth and a low environmental footprint will still be important, but it will be just as important to deliver the eggs at the right time and in the right quantity. As an important part of this, the company is now strengthening its expertise in supply chain management.
Official opening of AquaGen’s Profunda facility
AquaGen’s new full-cycle facility, Profunda, was officially opened on the 21st August 2023. As Norway’s only land-based full-cycle broodstock and egg production facility, Profunda will deliver biosecure salmon eggs of top quality all year round and aim to supply customers across the globe.
What is the carbon footprint of a salmonid egg?
For the first time, the carbon footprint for eggs from farmed salmon and rainbow trout has been calculated, using a life cycle assessment analysis (LCA analysis).
