Despite the competitive nature of the companies, by sharing data and best practise, they strive to improve the industry and promote salmon as a sustainable food source to feed a growing global population. GSI has a commitment that all members become ASC certified by 2020 as a means to achieving the common vision to improve environmental performance and industry reputation.
You’ll learn what the GSI does and when it was started, the challenges facing salmon farmers and what the industry is doing to strive toward a sustainable future.
