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

Andfjord Salmon Reports Successful First Harvest With Strong Results and Exceptional Survival Rate

  (NORWAY, 7/28/2023)

Norwegian company Andfjord Salmon reported a total biomass of Atlantic salmon reached 646 tonnes translating to approximately 530 metric tonnes HOG (Head-On-Gutted), with an average weight of approximately 3.4 kilograms per fish.

An exit-count in conjunction with transfer of fish from the pool shows that approximately 193,000 salmon was released in the pool one year ago. 

Andfjord Salmon has been granted a licence for 10,000 tonnes MAB with potential production volume of 19,000 tonnes HOG at Kvalnes, Andøya.

"We are elated to achieve such a remarkable survival rate, especially after transportation to slaughter. The fact that 97.5% of the fish survived underscores that the fish has had excellent living conditions in the pool. As a consequence of this, we have harvested fish that may not have survived in other fish farming facilities. This has a negative impact on the average weight and superior share, which is still at an impressive level. However, a high survival rate is obviously the most valuable from a financial perspective,” says Martin Rasmussen, CEO of Andfjord Salmon. 

 

The harvested fish displayed a diverse range of weights, from 1-2 kg up to 5-6 kg. Of particular note, approximately 50% of the fish fell into the 2-3 kg category, achieving an average price of approximately 67 NOK/kg. Additionally, around 40% of the fish weighed between 3-4 kg, realizing an average price of approximately 80 NOK/kg.

"The high-quality attributes of our salmon have not gone unnoticed by our customers, who have provided very positive feedback, especially on the color of the fish. This reiterates the conceptual advantages of Andfjord Salmon’s salmon farming method. Our main goal for the first batch of fish was to reach the ‘right’ buyers, not to maximize the average price. Even so, we have seen buyers coming back after the first shipment wanting to pay extra for the next delivery. This has made us even more confident that we will be able to achieve a healthy premium on our product in the future”, adds Martin Rasmussen.

In future batches, Andfjord Salmon’s average slaughter weights will be notably higher. The reason behind the earlier slaughter of the inaugural batch is to accommodate the commencement of further expansion construction.

On 13 June 2023, Andfjord Salmon announced details of a build-out plan to reach a total production volume of 40,000 tonnes (HOG) at Kvalnes, and that the company had secured bank financing for its expansion at Kvalnes. The new production capacity will gradually be added between 2025 and 2030, with 8,000 tonnes (HOG) of production capacity expected to be added as early as 2025.

The texture, colour and overall condition and taste of Andfjord Salmon 's salmon is excellent.
