Through global collaboration and research, pooling of resources, and sharing of knowledge, the GSI aims to make significant improvements across the industry in terms of social responsibility, environmental impact, and social contributions. Learn more about how we're doing that below.
As members of the GSI, we are committed to making significant improvements in the sustainability of our operations and to reaching the highest levels of environmental and social performance. The ASC certification offers a credible and reliable means of doing so, which is why we have chosen it as our benchmark for progress.
Climate change is a major threat to the health of the planet and humanity, but there are many innovations and solutions to address it. To mitigate its impact, all sectors, including salmon farming, need to continually reduce greenhouse gas emissions to ensure a safe future. Here we look at how collaborative action can speed up progress.
Farmed salmon is a highly nutritious and healthy source of protein, and this is largely due to the specialized diet of the salmon, which is rich in nutrients and Omega-3s. Find out how innovation and collaboration are helping us improve the sustainability of our feed resources.
Our main objective as salmon farmers is to produce healthy fish in healthy waters, which is why biosecurity, or disease management, is a priority topic for the GSI. As farmers of the sea, we share our waters, which is why we believe it is important to cooperate and work together on biosecurity management.

The Future of Aquaculture
In June 2018, the World Wildlife Fund (WWF) and the GSI co-hosted a thought-leaders’ discussion at the World Bank in Washington, DC, to look to the Future of Aquaculture. Focusing on questions such as: what barriers and opportunities might the industry face, and what can we do now to help ensure the sector’s future is sustainable? The group set out to build a road map for a sustainable future of aquaculture.
GLOBAL AQUACULTURE ROUNDTABLE
Recognizing the power of private sector leadership in delivering on aquaculture’s potential, in May 2022 GSI co-convened a roundtable of aquaculture industry leaders to help shape what purpose driven aquaculture could look like and how to make it possible. Focused on a powerful yet pragmatic mission, the industry leaders developed a Call to Action on how they will mobilize industry-wide progress to help ensure aquaculture provides nourishment in healthy, equitable and climate-resilient ways.
