Part of Nordic Aquafarms
Nordic Aquafarms was established in 2015 with the aim to be a leading player in land-based aquaculture with production close to large markets. Nordic Aquafarms has companies in Norway, Denmark and the US. The company headquarter is in Fredrikstad, Norway.
Production in the Nordic region
Nordic Kingfish has 3 operational sites in the Nordics, with broodstock and a marine hatchery located by the Limfjord (Denmark) and grow-out facilities located in Hanstholm (Denmark) and Fredrikstad (Norway). Our Danish facilities are currently producing and selling fish at a weekly basis with further capacity coming online by mid-2023. Our facility in Fredrikstad is currently being converted to yellowtail kingfish production and is ready with fish in the market early 2024.
Capacity of 3,000 metric tons and on-site expansion possibilities for further growth
On our locations we have available land to grow our business further, and we have a strategy to utilize these growth-opportunities organically and alongside growing the market for yellowtail kingfish.
