A great deal of the world's fish stocks are under major threat due to overfishing and pollution. The sea along the coast of Northern Norway and the Barents Sea, where Nergård catches its raw material, is clean and rich in nutrients. Right here is where you find some the world's largest and most well-managed populations of groundfish and pelagic fish, which is why we are highly aware of our responsibility to help conserve these areas so that future generations can also reap the benefits of these resources.
Health, safety and the environment are the prioritised focus and work areas in our daily operations, both at the processing plant onshore and on the company's fishing fleet. There is a high level of awareness in terms of efficient energy consumption, packaging and chemicals. Nergård Havfiske is an industry partner to CRISP (Centre for Research-based Innovation in Sustainable Fish Capture and Processing), which works with instrumentation for identification and measuring, environment-friendly and selective tools, and quality and value creation.
