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.
