Cermaq Records 'Robust' Sustainability Performance In Q2

Norwegian fisheries company Cermaq has said that it had a 'robust' sustainability performance in the second quarter of the year, with low fish mortality and escape levels.

For the period from April to June, the company said that fish mortality was 4.4% in Norway, 5.9% in Canada, and between 3% and 6.8% in Chile.

There were two incidents of escapes in Chile, where 47,500 fish escaped due to holes in the nets. There were no escapes recorded in Norway and Canada.

The company also said that there was no use of antibiotics in Norway during the period, and 'significant reductions' in Chile and Canada compared to the same quarter last year.

Sustainability Focus

Cermaq has published its quarterly sustainability results on key indicators related to fish health, environmental and social topics in its operations since the beginning of 2016.

“We believe a company which openly reports its results also has a better overview of risk and opportunities, a stronger basis for dialogue with stakeholders and a better ability to actually make progress on material topics,” says Wenche Grønbrekk, head of sustainability and risk in Cermaq.

The company, which has its head office in Oslo, farms salmon and trout, with operations in Norway, Chile and Canada.
