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.
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).
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.
