The salmon takes the lead, and we follow its direction
We’ve been producing sustainable salmon along the Trøndelag coast since 1982
Bjørøya is a family-owned company based in Flatanger. We are part of a forward-looking industry that is creating jobs and contributing to a vibrant coastal community.
With long stretches of coastline, fresh sea air and clear, oxygen-rich waters, nature provides what’s needed for us to produce salmon of the highest quality.
The story behind Bjørøya
The foundations upon which the company is built are the interest, knowledge and skills that purse seine fishing for salmon had brought with it. The first general manager of the company, Lillian Løfsnæs was a pioneer - both as a female manager and a leader in aquaculture.
In the pure, cold sea along the coast of Trøndelag, the ocean temperature is low, and the natural conditions are perfect for producing healthy and sustainable salmon.
HEALTHY AND SUSTAINABLE SALMON PRODUCED IN OPTIMAL CONDITIONS
Since its establishment, Bjørøya has played on the same team as the forces of nature along the Trøndelag coast. Together, we have developed a product that we are proud to call our own. Our work is now focused on being able to produce it in the most sustainable way possible.
