Our operations are located in six municipalities in Rogaland and we contribute significantly to local value creation. Production capacity is estimated to be approximately 24,000 tonnes gutted weight. The company is Global GAP certified.
Our venture in Rogaland is a result of mergers and acquisitions of smaller fish-farming companies in the region. The value chain is now fully integrated in Grieg Seafood Rogaland (GSFR) from roe to harvest in the same region.
In recent years, GSFR has made substantial investments in recycling technology and efficiency upgrades on the fish farms. We have unique traceability and transparent biological safety throughout the production cycle – essential in order to meet the farming industry’s future challenges.
