“We have worked closely with BioMar for several years now and have achieved satisfactory results. Therefore, it makes sense to continue the good cooperation going forward,” says Roger Fredriksen, Fredrikstad Seafoods’ CEO. “We are going to produce tasty, high-quality salmon, raised on a feed from sustainable and nutritious raw materials. We see BioMar as a competent and forward-looking supplier, one that is well advanced on sustainability” continues Roger Fredriksen.
Fredrikstad Seafoods started its production at the RAS facility in Fredrikstad in 2019 and currently supplies salmon to the Norwegian and European markets. Fredrikstad Seafoods is part of Nordic Aquafarms, which produces kingfish on land in Denmark. They are also planning to build RAS facilities in North America on both US coasts that will produce Atlantic salmon.
“We are very pleased that Fredrikstad Seafoods wants to extend the agreement, and look forward to continuing our cooperation,” said BioFarm Manager Oda Skognes Høyland in BioMar Norway. One of the success factors for RAS operations is dedicated and competent people. The team in Fredrikstad is able to get the most out of the fish, the production system, and the potential of the feed. “Our strong focus at BioMar continues to be on the development of innovative and sustainable feed solutions, and together with Fredrikstad Seafoods, we will keep moving this exciting project within the RAS segment forward,” concludes Høyland.
