BioMar has for decades been one of the driving forces behind the development of products for recirculation. As a response to the increased focus on how land-based farming impacted the water quality of creeks and rivers, BioMar started the development of the product range ORBIT back in the late 1980’s. Today, this product range embraces furthermore high-performing products for land-based salmon farming.

The highly advanced technologies being used require highly advanced feed solutions and farming practices to enable a strong performance”, states Carlos Diaz, CEO of BioMar Group and continues:

“As a strategic initiative, we have brought all of our RAS-specialists into a global task force. They are working together with global as well as local customers accelerating the next generation of feed solutions for RAS. We are building upon a very strong foundation being a leader within the RAS segment for many years, but the future requires that we can bring even more specialised products to the market, supported across geographies”.

The strategic objective for BioMar is to clearly deliver upon the company purpose of being an innovator within efficient and sustainable global aquaculture:

“We will very soon present new products to the market. This task force has as one of the main objectives to ensure we contribute to release the full potential of land-based farming. In order to create a sustainable food future, we need together as an industry to enable a doubling of our production capacity without increasing pressure on the environment, wild fish and agriculture. That is a challenge, we need to address together. We all have a responsibility for adding resources and increasing collaboration”, concludes Carlos Diaz.
