Look to nature the key to success H-82: Four hours is what it takes. From salmon is swimming in fresh cold water, till it’s packed and ready to be distributed. Bremnes Seashore looks to nature and invests a lot in process technology, resulting in optimal products.

• A new production line that has an impressive hygienic design, emphasizing both efficiency and work environment. • Innovative thinking combined with strict quality control in every part of the process from egg to fillet, and patented, well-known methods within the industry of aquaculture.

A taste of quality sea food from a natural resource Ocean Quality’s three modern processing plants F-480, H-82 and R-114 are well known for their tradition of high quality products and services. F-480


Grieg Seafood, Finnmark: Produces the world’s most northerly grown salmon, in conditions which are unsurpassed. The northerly location also means that we are very close to the Russian and Eastern European markets. By air, we have the potential to reach our Asian customers quicker than from any other salmon farming region. This reduces our carbon footprint as well as increases the freshness and shelf life of our products. H-82


Bremnes Seashore, Bømlo, Hordaland: Inventor of Cold Fish Technology and Pre Rigor Processing Technology. Engages in the production of smolt, marine growers and in harvesting and processing of salmon. Through strong focus on best possible fish health and welfare, and optimal processing facilities, H-82 has become well reputed for its high quality products. Strategically located at the west coast of South Norway. R-114


Grieg Seafood, Rogaland: The network of deep fjords allows us to engage in deep water fish farming. The deep sites ensure a constant temperature which can be maintained year round. These optimal conditions have enabled us to grow fish of outstanding quality with high colour and low fat content. Our farms are closer to the UK and European markets than any other region in Norway, and as such delivers the freshest and best tasting salmon to our customers. Capacity The salmon farming activities at R-114 and H-82 have 20 licenses each while F-480 has 24 licenses. This gives a total capacity of approximately 90 000 metric tonnes of salmon (based on 1400 tonnes per license). 9


Scottish salmon – a high quality product As Shetland’s leading Scottish salmon producer, Grieg Seafood Shetland offers superior salmon, whole and gutted – supplied fresh or deep frozen.

SA019 EC

We take great pride in producing salmon of the highest quality, sought out by top chefs and food experts. A fully traceable product from egg to plate is an impressive statement to make – but a promise we pledge to keep. In terms of product quality and value for money, we have a competitive advantage as we control the whole production process. We can assure that our rigorous standards are applied throughout the entire farm rearing, processing and delivery service. 11

The superior quality of the fish sets it apart SA019 EC : The prime objective is to produce sustainable salmon, which mirror their natural life cycle. Four essential ingredients make it possible: • Location is everything. The wild crashing seas around Shetland creates a perfect environment in which to rear the very best fish. • The fish welfare is paramount, therefore, once salmon is harvested, it is transferred by well boat from the farm site direct to the processing unit.


• The sustainable and responsible production of supreme quality salmon is at the core of Grieg Seafood Shetland’s business, paying particular attention to the environment surrounding the sea sites and adherence to strict quality control. • The freshness of our fish is assured with the processing plant delivering optimal quality and extended shelf life for today’s discerning customer.

From the wild sea around Shetland to the world SA019 EC


The wild, crashing sea creates the perfect environment in which to rear the very best fish. Our farms are located in the wide open sea where strong tidal currents of the North Sea and the North Atlantic Ocean meet, creating a powerful water exchange that not only provides fast-flowing clear water and maintains a clean seabed, but also provides a natural habitat for salmon to swim against the tide developing the strongest and healthiest fish. Our state-of-the-art well boats efficiently collect live fish from any of our 22 sites. The fish are then pumped live into our harvesting and processing facility, maximizing the freshness and ensuring consistently high quality. Capacity At Grieg Seafood Shetland, we process 20.000 tonnes of gutted salmon each year.
