Sustainability - MOWI - Scotland

Working in harmony with the sea

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.

Addressing global challenges

Approximately 70% of our planet is covered by water, yet only around 2% of the world’s food supply comes from the ocean.

With wild-capture fisheries under increasing pressure, it is important that aquaculture bridges this gap, assuming an increasingly greater role in providing food security for the planet.

At Mowi, we believe that by farming the ocean, we can sustainably produce healthy, nutritious and affordable food for society at large
