New land based contract with Sisomar

Sisomar’s philosophy is close to AKVA group’s underlying strategy to develop technological solutions based on good fish health and solid biology.

“We’re very grateful that Sisomar once again has chosen AKVA group to be its partner for this exiting project,” says Ole Gabriel Kverneland, Sales Manager AKVA group Land Based, adding: 

“We’re particularly happy to be working with a client that truly values the importance of developing good solutions in close collaboration with us in the supply chain. Over time, this is how we make each other good and continuously build better facilities.”

Biology in focus
Sisomar’s philosophy is close to AKVA group’s underlying strategy to develop technological solutions based on good fish health and solid biology. 

“It’s all about creating an environment that makes the fish thrive as good as possible, and thus enabling it to express its true biological potential. By caring for the fish, we will see better growth and higher survival rates,” Kverneland says. 

Jon Meisfjord, General Manager of Sisomar, tells the company has a strong focus on solutions and operations that ensures the fish does not experience unnecessary stress.

“Naturally, this is important from an economic perspective, but we also believe it’s an important factor to maintain the industry’s long-term reputation. As of today, Sisomar has a smolt dividend of 93 – 95 percent for 0 year-olds. In terms of growth, both we and the rest of the industry still have a long way to go before we’re able to utilize the fish’ full potential, but the measures we have done so far involving improved technology does have an effect. Now we need to focus on production after several years of expansion,” he says. 

Sisomar is also keen to build facilities that utilizes modern technology and automation in order to give its employees the best conditions to perform their work in a safe and efficient manner. 

“This way we can also allocate released resources to focus on fish welfare,” Meisfjord points out.

Long-term cooperation
During the last 10 years, AKVA group has delivered several new facilities and modernization projects for Sisomar.

“From our point of view, it’s been important to not only find an equipment supplier, but a long-term partner that we can trust to be there for us even after a facility is completed. We have long experience with deliveries from AKVA group and are confident that we once again will get a reliable and efficient facility,” Meisfjord says.
