Farmed salmon eat 2.4 times more than they produce
“The New Fish” by Saetre and Ostli sheds light on the hidden costs of open-net pen salmon farming.
Global aquafeed company, Skretting, states farmed salmon consume “2.4 times as much food as it gives us.” Actual amounts consumed may be even higher.
Ocean-based salmon farming is simply not a sustainable food source.
