SalMar Aker Ocean will operate within offshore fish farming, including offshore and semi-offshore.

SalMar Aker Ocean Established

  (NORWAY, 11/16/2021)

On 26 August 2021 SalMar announced that it was entering a strategic partnership with Aker ASA to establish a global offshore aquaculture company.

The closing of the transaction has now taken place and the new joint company, SalMar Aker Ocean AS has been established.

SalMar Aker Ocean will operate within offshore fish farming, including offshore and semi-offshore. By combining Aker and SalMar’s industry experience, leading competence in salmon production, software, and cleantech the aim is to create the world’s most reliable and intelligent offshore farming operations with the highest requirements for fish welfare and a zero-emissions value chain ambition.

Salmar is one of the world’s largest and most efficient producers of farmed salmon.

SalMar Aker Ocean will be at the forefront of ensuring sustainable growth on the salmon’s terms. The company will initially focus on establishment of offshore fish farming in Norwegian waters, which will require establishment of a regulatory framework for offshore fish farming. SalMar Aker Ocean will collaborate with Norwegian authorities, the aquaculture industry, and other interested parties for the establishment of a regulatory framework.

“SalMar Aker Ocean and its owners look forward to join forces developing offshore aquaculture as an important contributor to the future supply of healthy seafood globally,” says CEO in SalMar ASA Gustav Witzøe.

“The efficient closing process underlines SalMar’s and Aker’s dedication to be at the forefront of ensuring sustainable growth in the aquaculture industry”, says Witzøe.
