Norway Royal Salmon (NRS) has today had its first two production sites authorised according to the Aquaculture Stewardship Council (ASC) standard. 

We at NRS are extremely pleased to have our first production sites certified according to the strictest international environmental standards in our industry. This is a global standard for responsible aquaculture that along with our green licences will contribute to a reduction in the effects on the environment and society. “This will help to move the industry even more in the direction of sustainability, and it is decisive for our ability to compete and for our future growth", says CEO Charles Høstlund in a press release.

Norway Royal Salmon is in the process of certifying all its production sites in accordance with the ASC standard. Our goal is to have all of our production sites ASC certified by 2020.

The ASC standard is an environmental standard that has been drawn up in cooperation with WWF. Among other things, it stipulates strict requirements as to how fish are farmed and requires documentation concerning laws and regulations, biodiversity, fish welfare, the genetic integrity of wild populations, responsible feeding, control of fish diseases and that our suppliers meet critical and essential criteria in the standard.
