About us

Cermaq is a globally leading salmon company farming salmon in Canada, Chile and Norway. Our commitment to openness and transparency is at the heart of everything we do. It is on this foundation that we build strong partnerships, invest in a sustainable future, and stay conscious of our responsibility to society. We will never sacrifice long term goals for short term gains.

As a global organization, we are aware of the challenges being faced around the world from climate change, ocean debris and micro-plastics, declining natural fish stocks, and loss of arable lands for traditional protein farming.

We are supporting the United Nations and its work to combat these issues and are proud members of the United Nations Global Compact Action Platform on Sustainable Ocean Business.
