Commitment to finding sustainable solutions to support the long-term future of the farmed salmon industry
Members of NCE Seafood Innovation Cluster invites organizations interested to develop novel oils high in Omega-3 for fish farming, to share their proposals to supply participating GSI members with a minimum of 25,000 tons of novel oil annually for a minimum of two years. These additional resources will significantly increase the availability of Omega-3 rich oils, and support the sustainable use of marine oils in fish feed.
“Ensuring a long-term supply of our feed resources has always been a key focus for the GSI, and through this commitment to purchase new novel oils, instead of waiting for the market to act, we hope to accelerate the development of viable novel oils at a commercial scale to improve the long-term stability of our supply chain.” said
Alf-Helge Aarskog, CEO of Marine Harvest.
The tender is open to any organization that is able to supply novel oil resources and meet the requirements stated in the tender document. The deadline for proposal submission is October 31, 2015; after this date, the participating members of the GSI will review and assess all proposals received, in terms of suitability and viability. The GSI anticipate a decision will be reached by the end of 2015, at which time a further announcement will be made.
