Our whole business is designed to protect the environment while producing healthy seafood. It is a core value for our company and staff.
Matorka is a world leader in sustainable and environmentally friendly fish farming. Our fish farms are run on green, sustainable energy, but at the same time are designed to minimize power use. Any carbon footprint the company makes is offset by tree planting and therefor the company is certified as carbon neutral. At Matorka we use geothermal waters to regulate temperatures at our farms. This gives us the ability to optimize growth by using sustainable energy.
Our farming activities are all on land, which eliminates the risk of escapees. This prevents farmed fish DNA from mixing with wild fish.
Our feed only uses fishmeal from cut-offs from local fish processing and therefor does not rely on the pelagic fishing.
