Shaping the future of aquaculture

We achieve this by offering solutions that enhance fish welfare, optimize biological performance, promote sustainability, ensure safety, and boost profitability for the farmer.

Local presence, personal engagement

The unique strength of our brand lies with our people.

We are proud to employ 900 of the most competent, solid and innovative brains within aquaculture. Solid people make solid sustainable business, for our customers and for ScaleAQ. Local presence means strong relations, being there, rubbing shoulders and solving challenges hands-on.


Innovation and development

Constant development needs to happen at all levels of the organization. In ScaleAQ we are continuously tweaking and optimizing existing products. In addition, we do targeted development of new products based on existing solutions and long-term projects to bring brand new concepts to the aquaculture industry.

As a company we want to use our position and insight in the industry to contribute on all levels alongside our customers and partners. Our R&D department collect ideas from across the entire organization as well as from customers to establish strong development projects, often in collaboration with academic institutions.

We have the systems and professional project management to ensure quality
and oversight to support people and environments showing commitment and initiative. Our advisors can facilitate access to ScaleAQ’s entire development team across all areas within aquaculture to support customers cases.
