A BLUE FUTURE

The Future For Cod Farming

Focusing on eco-sustainable food production, we want to work closely with all relevant disciplines to together develop food production in step with nature to produce good healthy food for the population in a gentle and prudent manner.

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.

We will actively work to promote the environment, we are in a unique position where we now work actively together with potential suppliers of equipment and services where we will be in front with environmentally friendly measures. 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.

SUSTAINABLE FISHING

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 five percent 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.
