Norwegian salmon is scientifically documented as sustainable
Aquaculture will play a major role in feeding the growing population and Norway’s aquaculture industry ranks among the world’s leading programs. As the second-largest exporter of seafood, Norway understands that safeguarding the environment and fish stocks for the future is the only way its aquaculture industry can remain sustainable.
Fish and shellfish are nutrient dense and salmon is no exception. It is an excellent source of high-quality protein, vitamins and minerals (including potassium, selenium and vitamin B12) but it is their content of omega‑3 fatty acids that receives the most attention, and rightly so.
Marine omega‑3 fatty acids from Salmon are beneficial for healthy skin and heart.
A good salmon dinner covers your omega‑3 needs for a whole week!
Marine omega‑3 fatty acids from Salmon are often lacking in the modern western diets.
Compared to other animals, a salmon needs less feed to gain one kilo. Farming salmon is therefore an excellent way to produce food.
