Fish welfare is based on sound farming practices and good health management.
Sound farming practices aim at rearing fish under conditions that suit their biological needs and use husbandry techniques that minimise stress, aggression and injury.
Good health management is based on frequent monitoring of the health status of the fish, with rapid response when this status is compromised. When responding, Marine Harvest will use only permitted medicines as prescribed by certified veterinarians. In the interests of continuous health improvement across the aquaculture industry, Marine Harvest cooperates with vaccine manufacturers in the development of new vaccines.
