Fully integrated

Nordic Aquafarms is a pure-play land-based seafood company fully integrated with their own RAS-design, proprietary technology, construction and project management, production and sales. We believe that true success in land-based seafood production require understanding of all aspects of the technology and fish biology, and we therefore design, build and operate our farms. In close collaboration with our fish experts our Danish RAS engineers design our farms with equipment from high quality suppliers. Our operating teams are highly skilled fish experts with long experience from sea-based and land-based aquaculture.

Sustainability

Nordic Aquafarms believe that fresh product should be locally sourced to mitigate effects on climate and for consumers to be confident about the products they consume.

Nordic Aquafarms addresses the sustainability challenge through the following strategies:

  • Close to consumer – thus dramatically reducing CO2 footprint
  • Setting a new standard in discharge treatment.
  • Treating discharge for bacteria and virus to protect wild fish populations.
  • Escape proof facilities.
  • Recycling of all biproducts.
  • Power-efficient systems.
  • Local community engagement and contributions.

To truly realize sustainable practices, we are committed to being transparent and provide fully traceable products.

All our facilities shall be certified by leading sustainability organizations. Currently, our Danish facility is ASC certified. The Norwegian facility is next in line.

Technology

Nordic Aquafarms was founded on a vision of making a real difference in developing next generation seafood systems and has developed proprietary RAS systems with patented technology. Our designs and execution always start with fish welfare and environmental objectives, and we build systems that are made to last.

What are recirculating aquaculture systems (RAS)?

  • All production takes place indoors
  • Water is recirculated and continuously treated to maintain good water quality for the fish
  • Water exchange is maintained through intake and discharge of moderate volumes of water per kilo fish
  • Feeding, light, water quality, and temperature are constantly optimized 
  • Back-up systems ensure reliable operations
  • The technology involved is generally in wide use in the aquaculture industry

We have taken RAS further in terms of performance and scale. Some of our innovations developed by our in-house experts, based on proven technologies, include:

  • Highest treatment levels of discharge in the industry
  • Proprietary patented technology to ensure good and stable water quality
  • Extensive bio-security prevention measures to avoid disease
  • Lowest water exchange rates and use in the industry
  • Unique energy management systems reducing power use and cost

The end-result are modules ready for truly large-scale RAS farming – and a key solution in contributing to increasing seafood supply without leaving a material environmental footprint.

Both our hatchery and grow-out designs have been designed to eliminate risk of fish escape, through extensive physical barriers.
