When we set out to create the world’s most responsible salmon fishery, our goal wasn't just to reduce the typical problems that come with farming fish – our mission was to go one better. 

Our mission from day one was to create a sustainable fishery that discharges absolutely zero effluent back into the environment. Along the way, we just happened to raise the world's finest Atlantic salmon. 

Growing from nothing to absolutely zero.

Our idea of a responsible fishery that helps protect ocean ecosystems began in the UK some 20 years ago. It's taken more than 20 years – and countless hours of research and development – but our unique land-based saltwater RAS system is now fully operational and ready to scale, as we work towards meeting the global demand for sustainably raised salmon. In 2021, we will increase production capacity from our state of the art facility on the beautiful East Coast of Canada to 1,000 metric tonnes per annum.
