Andfjord Salmon’s farming facility is patented, consumes a minimal amount of energy and carries low operating costs.

Designed for new solutions

The farming facility is designed to avoid problems with salmon lice and poisonous algae, with robust barriers to prevent escape and minimise pollution of the marine environment.

The flow-through farming method is very similar to a flow-through netpen in the sea, which gives a healthy robust environment for the salmon. Andfjord Salmon is a Norwegian company established in 2014 by founders with extensive salmon farming, financial and business development experience.

The company is built on a foundation of innovation and a sustainable aquaculture concept for the land-based farming of Atlantic salmon. At Andfjord Salmon, we set the highest standards of integrity for our operations, and continually strive to improve our corporate governance and culture.


Andfjord Salmon is committed to the UN's sustainability development goals and will report regularly from our work with the goals.

Life below water

Andfjord Salmon aims to have the highest biosecurity to prevent contagious fish diseases and sea lice. The Andfjord Salmon farming process also prevents toxic algae. The flow-through technology and the low density in the tanks provides the best possible fish welfare.

Andfjord Salmon provides the cleanest seawater in the Arctic. The water is kept crystal clear in the farming facility, due to our innovative flow-through farming solution. The farming facility is kept tightly secured, to prevent any harm to stocks of salmon in local rivers. There are several salmon rivers on Andøya, and our farming facility does not have any negative impact on the wild stocks.

Our goal is to write aquaculture history in the field of sustainable production, and our suppliers are required to document that they are actively working to reduce the impact of their operations on the natural environment.
