Cermaq produces healthy, high quality protein by growing salmon in Norway, Chile and Canada, and has the ambition of growing its production while reducing its environmental footprint.

- We also go against the flow in a time of increasing urbanization, by contributing to economic activity and workplaces in many rural areas, underlines Wenche Grønbrekk.

In the report Future of Spaceship Earth by DNV GL Cermaq is selected as the company presenting how industry can work to meet SDG14 Life below water.
