Farmed Salmon is a Core Component of Healthy, Sustainable Diets
The Global Salmon Initiative (GSI) today published its annual Sustainability Report, which documents the environmental performance and nutritional profile of farm-raised salmon. As part of the group’s efforts to drive improvements in the sustainability performance of the global fish-farming industry, the report provides a breakdown of 15 key sustainability
metrics per member company and per region – documenting progress and improving industry transparency.
