Bakkafrost Salmon



Bakkafrost Salmon

Bakkafrost is the leading producer of salmon from the Faroe Islands and is committed to maintaining the highest levels of fish welfare and sustainability; this is clearly reflected in the high quality of Bakkafrost´s salmon.

Bakkafrost is the most vertically integrated salmon farming company in the world. This gives Bakkafrost full control and responsibility over all aspects of production and quality.

The short distances in the Faroe Islands between the different stages of production is both environmentally friendly and minimizes stress levels during transport.

All care is taken to keep the conditions as natural and stressfree as possible for the salmon which receive no antibiotics nor GMO.

Salmon from Bakkafrost is in high demand from all over the world and is internationally reknown for its high quality.

Sustainable fish feed rich in marine content

Feed is one of the most important aspects when producing top quality salmon. Uniquely, Bakkafrost even produces its own fish meal and fish oil, which is then processed into high quality fish feed at the same facility.

Because of this impressive vertical integration, Bakkafrost has full control of the content in our fish feed and are also able to keep a higher level of fish meal and fish oil in our fish feed than most other salmon producers. This gives Bakkafrost Salmon a better fat content especially rich in the healthy Omega 3 fatty acids DHA and EPA.  This natural diet is evident in the good taste of Bakkafrost Salmon.

The natural diet for wild salmon is of course rich in marine resources and by keeping our salmon´s diet as natual as possible, we are able to show some of the industry´s best Feed Convertion Ratios. Which is a key indicator of sustainability.

All the fish which is used to produce Bakkafrost´s fish meal and fish oil is from approved sustainable fisheries and a big part are off-cuts or fish that would not have gone directly to human consumption.

The result is a higher quality salmon produced sustainably with impressive food in food out results.

Perfect natural conditions for salmon










Pristine Waters
The Faroe Islands are remotely located in pristine waters in the middle of the North Atlantic Ocean, the Faroese fjords and sounds are perfect for premium aquaculture production, as they provide exceptional biological conditions and excellent circulation of fresh pristine sea water.

Strong Currents
The harsh North Atlantic Ocean surges around and through the remote archipelago of the Faroe Islands. These strong currents continuously renew the pristine sea water flowing through the pens and help ensure optimal conditions for the salmon. These currents also help protect the environment around the pens and in the fjords and sounds by effectively cleaning and rejuvenating the production sites.
