Nordic uses Recirculating Aquaculture Systems (RAS) instead of net pens, flow-through raceways, or ponds. Land-based RAS farming was developed to mitigate impacts of these other types of fish farming.
- Nordic cleans and reuses production water.
- Nordic treats all water coming in and out of the farm for disease-causing pathogens.
- Nordic removes all solid waste from effluent and only discharges treated water.
- Nordic has extensive barriers to prevent fish escape.
- Nordic does not need medication and pesticides to treat parasites such as sea lice as they cannot enter the farm due to our extensive filtration and water treatment before the water enters the farm.
