Monterey Bay Aquarium Seafood Watch identifies Nordic’s Systems as Best Choice


The Monterey Bay Aquarium Seafood Watch identified the Indoor Recirculating Tank (AKA RAS-Recirculating Aquaculture Systems that Nordic Aquafarms will employ in Humboldt County) as the Best Choice for consumers looking for seafood that’s fished or farmed in ways that have less impact on the environment.


According to Seafood Watch, “Indoor recirculating tanks often have less effluent, disease, escapes and habitat impacts than other aquaculture systems.”


Land-based RAS production is a rapidly emerging method for sustainable production of salmon. It is based on indoor production in a controlled environment using large tanks and water treatment systems. Its benefits include:

  • The ability to recycle and treat water on site to reduce overall water consumption;

  • Recycling of waste resources and nutrients;

  • The prevention of sea lice and parasites;

  • The elimination of fish escape into the sea and co-mingling with wild species;

  • The application of renewable energy concepts;

  • A shorter distance to market for a high quality, fresh product, reducing the carbon footprint of air and land transport; and consistent quality
