8 December 2020 – For the first time in the history of seafood production, ten of the largest seafood companies in the world have committed to a set of time-bound and measurable goals that will ensure the industry becomes more sustainable. The goals are the result of four years of dialogues through the science-industry initiative Seafood Business for Ocean Stewardship (SeaBOS).
The Ocean Panel confirms the great potential for increased food production through aquaculture. Food production in the ocean can increase six-fold by 2050 by putting sustainability at the heart of ocean management. Cermaq is ready to deliver to support the achievement of the goals for sustainable development.
By using artificial intelligence and machine learning, Cermaq will be able to identify each fish in a net pen, allowing for targeted health interventions if required and individualized health records for each individual fish. The iFarm five-year project is the first of its kind and will allow for an individualized fish approach to salmon farming. Now, the first fish have been transferred in Cermaq’s iFarm.
