A global research organisation
We are devoted to developing innovative feed solutions for a sustainable and efficient future for the aquaculture industry. In order to fulfil this goal, BioMar has a truly global research organisation with highly skilled researchers and experts in their field. We make our contribution by utilising cutting edge technology at state-of-the-art research facilities around the world.
When aquaculture overtook wild catches as the most important source of fish products for human consumption, it was one of the clear signs of success for the industry. This apparent success has a high demand on innovation and constant development. Our Research & Develompment mission is to strengthen customer competitiveness.
BioMar continuously strives to improve its ability to innovate. Through unprecedented research efforts, we aim for the constant development and improvement of products, processes and the technology utilised. We have defined a set of research aims and objectives to achieve in order to fulfil BioMar’s purpose.
BioMar’s Research & Development department consists of a team of highly skilled specialists with backgrounds within nutrition, chemistry, and biology. The team is backed by our long tradition of working closely with external research institutions in several countries as well as active collaboration with fish farmers.
The global Research & Development team has close contact with our markets and is capable of integrating farm results from a multitude of different farming conditions in aquaculture with different farmed species into the research and development process.
BioMar’s long tradition of commercial trials and cooperation with external research institutions and centres are well-known.
We are proud of engaging with our customers and partners in long-term commitments for diverse research projects. On top of this, core to our business efforts and understanding, we perform a considerable amount of tests and trials at the R&D facilities that are owned by BioMar.
DYNAMIC PRODUCT DEVELOPMENT
BioMar’s motto is “Let’s innovate aquaculture”, reflecting the motivation from an integrated organisation of researchers and product developers in all countries where BioMar is represented. The epicentres of salmon research are the North Sea and Chile, but the research is organised into a single global unit.
We greatly benefit from the cross-species aspects of this R&D organisation, for instance in the use of cleaner fish in the fight against salmon lice. Our presence in the feed markets for marine fish in the Mediterranean region has also given us a number of unique advantages, including in the field of feed for lumpfish.
