Report Highlights Role of Land Based Salmon Farming

The global salmon farming industry continues to lead the way in the use of land based farming systems, says a new report.

Reading the new report issued by the International Salmon Farmers' Association (ISFA) it seems to me that reviews of available litteratur is biased in favor of marine net-cages and in most cases the references is 'out of date' with reality and resent development. The report cleverly avoid focussing om lice- and escapee problems and instead accentuate the energy use in landbased system. Read the report and make your own judgement.

The International Salmon Farmers' Association (ISFA) report -The Evolution of Land Based Atlantic Salmon Farms - highlights the history and the current state of land based farms for Atlantic salmon.

"Salmon farmers are experts in land based freshwater farming systems and have been successfully using these systems for smolt production and a variety of broodstock programmes for almost half a century. They fully understand the value and limitations of this technology," says Trond Davidsen, President of the International Salmon Farmers Association.

"This report serves as an excellent resource in the ongoing discussion about the future of land based farms for Atlantic salmon."

The report reviews available studies and information on land based Atlantic salmon farms from around the world, the current state of knowledge and technology as well as the challenges that have to be overcome as these systems continue to evolve.

"For us, the conversation is about growing healthy, nutritious seafood in an efficient and sustainable manner," says Mr Davidsen.

"By using both marine and freshwater resources in the most efficient way, the global salmon farming industry represents one of the best ways to feed the world's growing population with a minimal environmental footprint."
