We provide our clients with knowledge-based advice and data through our interdisciplinary expertise in aqua-medicine, fish health and welfare and environmental and technical services, which they use for sustainable practices and operations in the ocean.
Leading in the field of knowledge-based marine health
Due to the world’s growing population we need to produce more food and energy. Harvesting marine resources, farming of different oceanic species and harnessing energy from the oceans are becoming more important in the drive to meet the needs of the future. Our oceans are full of untapped opportunities but harvesting of resources in this blue field requires sustainable management.
This is Åkerblå’s core mission. We provide our clients with knowledge-based advice and data through our interdisciplinary expertise in aqua-medicine, fish health and welfare and environmental and technical services, which they use for sustainable practices and operations in the ocean.
Responsible production of food and energy
We work closely with industry partners, striving for a healthy marine environment, healthy fish, well designed fish farms and a clean seabed. As a neutral and independent service provider we are able to help our clients by ensuring all required surveys are performed and documentation is in place.
In this way, our clients are able to focus on and optimize their operations, in the knowledge that they are complying with regulations set out by the authorities and Åkerblå positively contributes to sustainable management of marine resources.
