We are committed to collaborating to secure the future of sustainable salmon farming

Salmon farming is one of the most significant food production success stories of modern times. The establishment of commercial salmon aquaculture didn’t begin until the 1970s, but just some 40 years later the global harvest now exceeds 2 million tonnes. Despite its considerable achievements, the industry is not without its challenges, not least meeting the unprecedented demand for the product from a global population expected to quickly reach 9.5 billion people. To ensure it can continue to expand sustainably, it has become increasingly apparent that greater collaborative relationships must be established across the value chain, making full use of its inherent knowledge and expertise to develop tangible industry-wide solutions.

An important way in which Skretting is helping advance the salmon sector is through its membership of the Global Salmon Initiative (GSI). In partnership, GSI salmon farmers and feed companies have committed to working precompetitively together to accelerate progress towards ever increasing standards of sustainability for the farmed salmon industry, and to driving progressive innovation in the feed sector.
