Aquaculture is the fastest growing food sector and has been for 50 years. The challenge is that the majority of production contributes to overfishing, destroyed ecosystems and has a negative impact on wild fish. At the same time, the demand for seafood is expected to increase by 100 million tonnes to 2050. Market for fish can with can with good conscience be described as a jungle for consumers. There are several different fishing methods, several different farming methods and lots of different labels that very few know what they mean or if they really do any good. The challenge is to develop a sustainable fishfood chain.
The vision of Gårdsfisk is to integrate aquaculture with agriculture and raise robust, herbivorous and fantastically delicate fish on land, manure can end up on arable land, the water is used twice, first in fish farming and then as irrigation, we avoid eutrophication, overfishing, destroyed ecosystems and do not risk infect wild fish. So we could raise the world’s most sustainable fish.Gårdsfisk strives to be able to achieve a complete circular model in order to be able to raise fish with the absolute least possible environmental and climate impact.
