We believe

We firmly believe in further growth of the global aquaculture industry. The declining capture of wild fish and the increasing global human population is creating a gap in the supply of seafood, which have to be bridged by industrial aquaculture. Fish health management tools are key to development of a sustainable and profitable continued industrialization of aquaculture.


We make aquaculture progress by living our vision and we have a strategic focus for premium fish health solutions.

Key elements in our strategy include:

  • to be a global provider of fish health products, focusing on vaccines and parasiticides
  • to further strengthen our portfolio of vaccines for farmed fish
  • expand to new aquacultured species
  • to be in forefront with competent and dedicated staff
  • supply vaccines and aquatic health products through our own subsidiaries or selected distributors
  • cooperate with key research institutes
  • investigate new business opportunities by licenses, alliances and acquisitions

To reach our strategic goals we are planning for growth of the company, an expansion that will not only benefit PHARMAQ, but also our customers and the industry. We are proud of the contribution we make to safe and healthy seafood.
