Innovation, Research and Development

Salmon farmers worldwide work together to meet the world’s growing demand for healthy and nutritious seafood.

Research and innovation continue to be a driving force in the development of this vibrant, youthful and forward-looking industry.

Members of the International Salmon Farmers Association (ISFA) are working together to grow salmon within strict food safety, fish health and environmental management parameters.

ISFA members have developed a modern and responsible industry that meets international and national regulations and industry codes of practice. Key elements of modern salmon farming include area management, integrated fish health management, and environmental monitoring programs. Many companies also comply with third party certification programs.

The salmon-farming sector has been supported by a diverse science and research community, which has provided insight and guidance on the relationship between salmon production systems and the natural ecosystem.
