For Mowi, environmental sustainability means operating a business that is environmentally responsible, socially beneficial and economically viable. We recognize environmental integrity, transparency and innovation as key values. Our commitment to environmental sustainability includes:
Sea Water Data: sea temperature, dissolved oxygen, salinity, clarity
Our corporate ethos rests ultimately on the belief that by farming the ocean we can sustainably produce healthy, nutritious and affordable food for society at large. Our stewardship of the environment is essential to reach our long-term goals and to safeguard the interests of future generations.
We pursue an integrated sustainability strategy aligned with the United Nation’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). In this strategy, long-term targets have been established for all of our guiding principles.
Approximately 70% of our planet is covered by water, yet only around 2% of the world’s food supply comes from the ocean.

Not only the carbon footprint of farm-raised salmon is lower but its edible yield is higher (68%) as compared to chicken (46%), pork (52%) or lamb (38%). For Mowi, high edible yields combined with 100% re-use of by-products (i.e.offcuts and trimmings) means that nearly every single gram of salmon is used.
Mowi is at the forefront of technological advances transforming aquaculture industry practices. However, one company alone cannot solve all sustainability challenges. Mowi is engaged with multiple stakeholders to promote open and honest dialogue and ensure the constant improvement of regulations and environmentally and socially responsible practices.
