Farms are often located in areas abundant with birdlife and marine mammals. Salmon farming companies must do what we can to avoid conflicts with wild animals.
We try to arrange operations and facilities in a way
that minimize our impact on local wild life.
HOW WE WORK TO IMPROVE
- We use equipment that minimize risk of injury to wild life where relevant. For example, we use protection on the pens to prevent marine mammals from injury if they are in contact with the farm. It is on our agenda to invest in more equipment that is gentle to wild animals.
- We generally only neutralize animals that are injured, and choose alternative ways to protect farms against intruders.
- Potential conflicts with wild animals is evaluated when we consider new sites.
