Healthy fish farming requires top water quality to allow the stock to circulate in an optimal growing environment. We always strive to minimise environmental impact to maintain optimal conditions for our production and for other users of the marine resource. We have been engaged in environmental monitoring since 1995 and are currently monitoring a range of physiochemical and biological parameters in both the sea and on the seabed. We use no anti-fouling agent whatsoever on our net or cage structures, and have a strict policy of minimal usage of therapeutical compounds. In fact, this is practically nil.
The feed conversion ratio, defined as the amount of food used to produce 1 kilogram of fish, is an important tool to minimise the impact on the environmental. The FCR can vary significantly with the species or size of fish and the time of the year. But it will always depend strongly on feed quality and feed management.
We are exclusively using high quality, high energy extruded diet for all our production. These modern diets are extremely digestible originating from natural sources. This helps us to maintain a minimal environmental impact while obtaining a superior end product. To ensure that no food is wasted and that the fish are fed the right amount of feed, each feeding session is monitored with underwater cameras.
