Farming

Our salmon is farmed in the clear and cold waters along the Norwegian coast. The quality and value of our salmon depends on maintaining a healthy salmon population and protecting the environment.

Along the coast of Western and Northern Norway, Atlantic salmon and trout are farmed in a number of locations spanning from the North Sea to the Barents Sea. Through our subsidiaries, Lerøy Seafood Group ASA and Br Birkeland AS, we are among the largest salmon and trout producers in the world. In addition to salmon farming, the group operates brood stock and smolt production on land.

Production of salmon and trout takes place in carefully selected locations in sea water. Production is monitored in individual cages, where cameras and sensors ensure optimal feed and control to ensure optimum growth, fish health and to minimize impact on the environment.

Lerøy Salmon Group ASA was the first fish farming corporation worldwide to gain Aquaculture Stewardship Council (ASC) certification for the entire value chain, from production to consumer. 

Processing

Our salmon is processed in modern facilities, both close to farming locations in Norway and markets in Europe. These facilities continue the focus on quality and value, effectively using the raw materials and producing market-ready products.
