Fish Feed

Havbrún, which is a fishmeal, fish oil and fish producer established in 1966 and bought by Bakkafrost in 2011, produces all the fish feed that Bakkafrost utilizes. They start with locally caught fish from sustainable pelagic stocks, a non-GMO product from start to finish. The short transport from local fishing grounds to feed production plants by super-cooling well-boats leaves a small CO² footprint and ensures freshness and provides complete traceability from initial catch to a final feed with a high content of marine food. Bakkafrost’s extensive production and storage capacity allows for immediate distribution of the right feed for the salmon’s need and life cycle.
