GSI launched with commitment to sustainable salmon farming

The Global Salmon Initative (GSI) announced at Aqua Nor that they are commited to sustainable salmon farming.

GSI represents 70% of the global farmed salmon industry and unites 15 global farmed salmon producers. The announcement shows commitment to greater industry cooperation and transparency which will hopefully lead to achievinga significant and continous progress in industry sustainability. 

"As an industry, we recognize that while we have made significant progress, there is still a lot to be done in terms of sustainability. As a relatively young industry, we hope that through industry collaboration, research and sharing of knowledge, we can make the necessary changes to do better, and keep getting better" said GSI co-chair Alf-Helge Aarskog, CEO of Marine Harvest.

"This is a game-changer. The salmon sector working together and embracing sustainability is going to radically change aquaculture - and affect the food industry in a big way," said Dr Jason Clay, Senior Vice President of Market Transformation for World Wildlife Fund (WWF).
