In a situation where the world needs more food and few can deliver, aquaculture has acquired even greater responsibility.
The world's most effective food production
Fish farming is currently the form of meat production that provides the greatest return on the feed.
Sustainability is much about the use of input factors in relation to yield. The smaller the amount of nutrients and proteins we use to produce food, the more sustainable it will become.
Compared with other meat production based on concentrated feed, salmon farming provides a very effective utilisation of the energy and protein in the feed. Most is converted into pure meat.
From a global perspective, the total consumption of feed for farmed salmon is marginal in relation to other meat production.
