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.
Leading the Blue Revolution is not a responsibility to take lightly. As the world population continues to grow, so does the demand for healthy food. With our oceans unable to naturally supply today’s needs, we have in a relatively short period of time, successfully supplemented hunting with farming. With aquaculture now providing more fish and
Mowi releases its first annual report as a refreshed entity, providing shareholders an integrated look at its full value chain. The world’s largest salmon aquaculture company announced in 2018 its company-wide change of name to Mowi, and associated MOWI brand. This change was in part a nod to salmon farming pioneers, but also the firm’s
The story of aquaculture began over two thousand years ago in China. The cultivation of carp fulfilled a basic need; that of providing a consistent supply of fish that was not seasonally dependent or subject to the vagaries and risks of wild harvest. Recent decades have seen many wild fish stocks fully exploited and global
