Aquaculture

DSM in aquaculture

In recent years, attention has been focused on addressing the global challenges of hunger, malnutrition and impaired health in our population. Since 2014, aquaculture has provided more fish for human consumption than capture fisheries, and by 2030 it is expected to contribute 60% of the total fish and shrimp available for human consumption. Expanding the role of aquaculture towards ending hunger and all forms of malnutrition is as important as the focus on increasing production. Aquaculture is uniquely positioned to be one of the driving forces needed to address the nutrition challenges that we face in the world today.

Why

Aquaculture is uniquely positioned to be one of the driving forces needed to meet the protein demand for our future generations.

We are committed to lead and help the aquaculture industry to build a robust and sustainable transformation worldwide, and to accelerate solutions that will foster a brighter future for everyone.

How

We use science to innovate. We collaborate with stakeholders across the value chain and address key challenges.

Delivering optimum environmental, nutrition, health & welfare is the key challenge that will limit the growth of aquaculture if not addressed within planetary boundaries.

What

We care about water and the life above and below its surface. We focus on marine resources and animal health and welfare, water quality and freshwater use, terrestrial resources and human health.

We supply innovative nutrition and health solutions to preserve water, the life above the surface and below and enable the sustainable growth of the aquaculture industry in the next decades.

Water

The amount of fresh water on earth is limited, and its quality is under constant pressure. Current aquaculture inland production represents more than 50% of world total production dominated by carp, tilapia, catfish and shrimp. We provide innovative solutions to reduce phosphorus and nitrogen environmental footprint, improve water quality for enabling sustainable animal production.
