    New opportunities and increased sustainability in aquaculture and marine nutrients

    New technology is rapidly changing industries and how businesses operate. In recent years, technological innovations have made it possible for salmon breeders to increase production volumes to higher levels while simultaneously improving fish health and animal husbandry.

    We have witnessed a substantial development. Salmon farming has evolved from being an immature, small sector to becoming a significant industry in several countries. Supported by continuous innovation, salmon farming has become an important source of value creation for consumers, employees, suppliers and producers.

    Global production of salmon has stagnated the last few years. Continued innovation and development - driven by biological knowledge, digitalisation, artificial intelligence and machine learning technology - is crucial for increased productivity and sustainable growth in production.

    Kverva participates in the development of technology companies in salmon farming and has a clear ambition to increase its technology investments in aquaculture and marine nutrients.
