Antibiotics Policy

SalMar does not use antibiotics for growth enhancement in any parts of the salmon lifecycle. Antibiotics will only be used in very particular situations where it is specifically advised by the veterinarian. Antibiotics resistance is a growing global issue and SalMar commits to being part of the solution by combating these risks in the following ways:

•             Only using antibiotics when absolutely necessary and specifically advised by the veterinarian

•             Precise content and dosage of solution when applied

•             Careful evaluation of timeframes for slaughter post treatment

•             Proper use and sufficient cleaning of PPE when conducting treatment
