The company’s main activities include growth in aquaculture. It exceeded the previous year’s production by 19%, reaching a new historical production record.

However, Aker BioMarine has gone even further. Thanks to an efficient supply chain and logistics, they also made significant progress in Animal Health and Nutrition in 2022. Feed producers, as well as fish and shrimp farmers, are benefiting from the proven advantages of QRILL products in terms of the growth and health of their marine species. Besides its own-consumer brand, Kori, also has a special mention in its report. This continued to grow throughout the year, with an increase in both distribution and same-store sales.

Sustainable fishing as a priority

One of the company’s pillars has always been sustainability and Aker BioMarine has excelled beyond expectations in 2022.

New research concluded that the Antarctic krill fishery is the cleanest in the world due to its extremely low bycatch rate. Furthermore, the Sustainable Fisheries Partnership results show that Aker BioMarine is an A-rated fishery for the seventh consecutive year.

Moreover, in their report, they explained that one of their top priorities is to contribute to a thriving Antarctic ecosystem. For that reason in 2022, they have committed an additional $1 million to support the Antarctic Wildlife Research Fund and its work to ensure a resilient Antarctic and up-to-date information.
