The owners, who have long and strong traditions in the aquaculture industry, founded the company in 2000. Its subsequent development has been based on cooperation between the owners and several strategic partners in the various subsidiaries.
The term Salten Aqua group is often used when speaking collectively about both the owners and the subsidiaries.
Through a well-organised structure, cooperation and control of the entire value chain from roe to market, Salten Aqua and our partners will strengthen competitiveness and growth.
In the subsidiaries, local management and the advantages of a small operation are retained, while through its overall size, the group ensures economies of scale.
Cooperation and good reputation are valued highly and should be keywords in the Salten Aqua group. These are values that create the basis for success.
Our facilities in Skjerstadfjorden
The facilities are almost unique in an aquaculture context, providing very good growth conditions for the salmon, with environmental benefits and good fish health. The Saltstraumen, which is the world’s strongest tidal current, ensures good water circulation and optimum conditions for both the fish and the fjord. Due to the good water circulation, and high freshwater content, salmon lice are unable to survive in the fjord. Watch the video!
