Cod farming is an incredibly sustainable production method ─ limited impact on scarce resources of the planet
Successful cod farming can be scaled up ─ both in Norway and abroad ─ to supply an increasing body of people
GOOD HEALTH & WELL BEING
Cod as a food source has numerous health benefits.
Fantastic source of protein. Furthermore, the protein in cod is of high quality i.e. contains every amino acid and is easily digestible.
Lean fish e.g. cod, has among the lowest quantity of persistent organic pollutant (POP).
RESPONSIBLE CONSUMPTION & PRODUCTION
Cod from the Norwegian- and Barents seas is rated as “green fish ─ eat with a good conscience” by WWFs seafood guide2.
With a FCR of 1.1, farmed cod is among the most efficient food sources in terms of required input factors.
LIFE BELOW WATER
Offering an alternative to wild-caught seafood.
THE QUALITY OF CARE
We take fish health seriously and therefore employ dedicated health and safety guidelines with our fish healthcare, so we can make sure we treat our fish with respect, and to further the quality of the food it makes for.
SUPPORTING OUR OCEANS
The wild fish population is under pressure, with cod farming we could see a reduction of catch quotas and in turn the demand for wild supply. We will actively work to promote the environment, putting us in a unique position where we now work actively together with potential suppliers of equipment and services in turning making us one of the leaders in environmentally friendly measures.
FISH IS NOT OFF THE MENU
By 2050, the world’s population will likely be nine billion people, one-third more than at the millennium. Because more than one billion people are already undernourished, the world must produce twice as much food in 2050 as in 2010 to meet the needs.
The potential for growth is at sea, and not on land: roughly 70 percent of earth is covered by water, but less than 5% of the world’s food production is happening in the ocean. No wonder we believe that the future is in the ocean.
KEY MACRO TRENDS SUPPORT THE BUSINESS CASE
HOW DO WE FEED 10 BILLION PEOPLE
It is estimated that the world population will be reaching 10bn people by 2050, a 56% increase compared to 2010.
The main challenge is to produce more food using less land.
Norwegian cod-farming venture Norcod has successfully raised new investment totalling NOK 105m (EUR 10.5m) in its ambitious journey to become the world's leading producer of responsibly farmed cod on an industrial scale.
