Seafood, Financial Risk & Reward, Shareholder Engagement, Equity

Within the global aquaculture market, Atlantic salmon is the second most financially valuable farmed fish species in the world, with over 2.4 Mt of farmed salmon products produced in 2018 representing a market value of $18 billion.

But, as demand for farmed salmon grows, production volumes and intensity are expected to increase and – as seen in parts of the agriculture sector with the application of fertilisers, pesticides and intensification at all costs – environmental issues such as aquaculture feed supply, disease and waste leakage are forecast to grow in parallel.

This Briefing Paper looks in detail at the prospects for the farmed salmon industry and makes recommendations for investors to protect their investments and help drive the industry towards more sustainable practices.
