Canada’s Poseidon crosses Atlantic to Norway

James Gaskill, CEO

The Canadian based aquaculture solutions company Poseidon Ocean Systems is to move into Norway.

It has just announced that it is partnering with the Norwegian based technology supplier Fjord Miljo in a move which it says will allow it to reach new customers across the Atlantic while receiving the same level of service Fjord Miljo customers have come to expect.

It said the partnership is a natural evolution for the two businesses as they both offer synergistic products and solutions and were singularly focused on improving fish welfare.

Poseidon says its technology can help farmers improve fish welfare to realise greater survival and growth, and minimize – if not eliminate mortality events,.

This can then increase the yield from every fish, all while reducing the carbon footprint of aquaculture operations.

James Gaskill. chief executive of Poseidon (pictured) said his team was thrilled at the partnership as they both had many shared values.

“So many of our products pair seamlessly together; for instance, Poseidon’s industry leading Life Support systems will enable the use of deep lice skirts, of which Fjord Miljø is a leading supplier,” he added. “We look forward to Norwegian customers having access to our technologies.”

Arild Heggland, sales and marketing manager at Fjord Miljø, said: “We are excited to represent Poseidon’s products throughout the Norwegian marketplace”

“With evolving regulatory and operational changes, as well as changing environmental conditions, increasing the portfolio of technology options available to Norwegian farmers will allow them to advance their operations and improve their biological results.”

The distribution partnership will take effect immediately, and both companies will be present at HAVExpo in Bergen next month.
