Water and Waste Management

Globally, drinking water is a very scarce but a vital resource. Even though this is not a problem in most areas where BioMar operates, we do affect the consumption of this scarce resource by purchasing raw materials that are responsible for considerable water consumption in the countries of origin. These countries are often in areas where water shortage is critical. We address this by sourcing raw materials with respect to international guidelines and certification schemes, in which responsible use of water has a high priority.

Sustainable Raw Materials - traced back to their source of origin

BioMar makes ongoing assessments of precisely which purchasing criteria are necessary to ensure and document that raw materials associated with special sustainability issues are responsibly sourced. Purchases of marine raw materials, soybean and palm products are subject to specific requirements. BioMar keeps track of the percentage of marine raw material deliveries originating from FAO COC approved fisheries, for example, IFFO RS, MSC or equivalent.

BioMar eliminates cataracts in lumpfish with a new feed diet

Cataracts are unfortunately a common eye condition in lumpfish affecting at least 60% and as much 100% of fish with the average condition being a severe cataract level of >5 according to a recent study by BioMar. It also showed that the prevalence and severity increased with fish size. BioMar has now solved the challenges associated with diet-related cataracts in lumpfish with the launch of a new Symbio recipe. These Lumpfish Grower products will make a significant contribution to improving fish welfare and their lice-grazing efficiency.
