Statement from NRS:

Norway Royal Salmons industrial ambition is to develop the future of aquaculture industry and secure growth, by using the knowledge from both the fish farming industry and offshore expertise with quality suppliers. This will generate growth within the supplier industry for both existing suppliers that supply equipment and services to the aquaculture industry, and for offshore and marine suppliers that traditionally do not supply the aquaculture industry.

Norway Royal Salmon will work closely with the government on our joint focus on long-term growth with a sustainable aquaculture industry and an environmental footprint that are within the acceptable limits. Norway Royal Salmon will, with our knowledge and experience from decades of farming of world-class salmon in combinations with offshore and marine expertise, create future growth and work along the coast.
