Nofitech provides land-based facilities and equipment to blue-chip salmon farmers. Its primary offering today is a recirculating aquaculture system (“RAS”), ModulRAS, which allows fish farmers to move parts of the fish's growth cycle onto land, and also offers facilities for the final growth stage, providing fish farmers with the option to locate all production on land.

What are the challenges Nofitech addresses?
How does Nofitech help?
Traditional aquaculture at sea has certain negative impact on life below water, both on the marine habitat and the fish themselves (e.g., disease and lice), and is thus regulated by quotas that limits the organic growth in sea-based farming.
Nofitech moves parts of, or the entire, growth cycle of fish farming onto land, reducing the pressures from sea-based farming on the ecosystem and enabling fish farmers to increase overall production.
An efficient and sustainable aquaculture system that supports consumers with access to sustainable and affordable proteins.

As part of Nofitech's impact initiatives, the management are during H1 2023 prioritizing relevant impact KPIs to track going forward. These are intended to reflect the company's ambition of contributing to a more sustainable and healthier food system.
Who is impacted?
Salmon farmers in the North Sea Basin are impacted by receiving access to a more environmentally friendly production system given the compact, standardized, and modular nature of its facilities, which also increases the utilization of their salmon farming licenses.
What are the impact considerations?
Without Nofitech, farmers within the aquaculture industry would not have the opportunity to grow post-smolt at a cost-effective and affordable price. Nofitech continues to drive the industry towards innovation and technology improvements – and the effort leads the entire industry towards a more sustainable future.
Recirculating aquaculture systems (RAS) are complex systems with high densities of fish that have a high economic value. Thus, larger production issues can have significant consequences, not only in terms of lost monetary value for the fish farmer, but also for fish health and welfare.
