(UNITED STATES, 10/15/2019)
Atlantic Sapphire has been shortlisted as a ‘Star of Innovation’ company at the annual European Small and Mid-Cap Awards.Atlantic Sapphire was selected among 27 companies in over 12 European countries for its achievements as a newly listed mid-cap company that places mission-driven innovation and sustainability at the centre of its strategy for business development.
Atlantic Sapphire is leading the development of more sustainable salmon farming methods using its Bluehouse™ technology, which allows it to eliminate many of the environmental impacts associated with traditional ocean farming.
Atlantic Sapphire salmon is raised in a revolutionary BluehouseTM - the equivalent of a Greenhouse where fish are given ideal conditions to thrive.
Atlantic Sapphire is honoured to be considered as an example of how mission-driven companies can drive superior returns for investors while making a difference for the stakeholders and communities in which they serve.
Atlantic Sapphire salmon will never have contact with sea lice or be exposed to wild fish diseases.
The European Small and Mid-Cap Awards, launched in 2013, were created by the European Commission, EuropeanIssuers, and the Federation of European Securities Exchanges (FESE) to recognise the efforts and best practices of Europe’s best performing small and medium recently listed companies in four different categories.
The winners will be decided by an independent, high-level jury moderated by the European Commission, consisting of representatives from academia, asset management, brokerage and the media.
The awards ceremony will be held in Brussels, on the 12th of November.
Florence Bindelle, the Secretary General of EuropeanIssuers said: “Atlantic Sapphire’s land-based operations present a successful business case in bringing technology innovation to salmon farming. With a strong focus on research and development, its Denmark facility delivers the most environmentally sustainable salmon production. In the near future, the company aims to transform the US market upon completion of its Miami facilities, the world’s largest land-based farm equipped with the latest technology.”
The ideal conditions ensure that the salmon arrives to your kitchen table or restaurant plate with the highest quality - and the lowest environmental impact.
Rainer Riess, the Director General of FESE, added: “Supporting SMEs in accessing finance through public markets is essential. It is rewarding to see companies like Atlantic Sapphireexcel and grow after having listed on the Oslo Stock Exchange.

Inside the BluehouseTM, the water is continuously purified to remain crystal clear by a state of the art filtration system. Furthermore, the fish are free to swim against strong currents, as they do in the wild.
