Kvarøy Arctic & James Beard Foundation Announce the First Women in Aquaculture Scholarship Fund

  (NORWAY, 5/5/2020)

Kvarøy Arctic sustainably raised salmon from Norway's Arctic Circle, and the James Beard Foundation—a nonprofit organization whose mission is to celebrate, nurture, and honor chefs and other leaders making America's food culture more delicious, diverse, and sustainable for everyone—are pleased to announce the first scholarship for women in aquaculture.

Applications for the "Women in Aquaculture" scholarship are available to those studying the subject at a college or university in any country, and can be submitted via the James Beard Foundation website starting May 1, 2020.

Sustainably-raised salmon for your plate from a third-generation, family-owned water farm on Kvarøy Island located on the Arctic Circle in Norway.

The annual USD 10,000 scholarship also includes a paid one-month summer internship on the Kvarøy Arctic farm site in Norway. The recipient can continue their internship each year they are in school, and will be considered for employment upon graduation.

"We finalized arrangements for the scholarship during our inaugural dinner at the James Beard House in February," says Kvarøy Arctic CEO Alf-Gøran Knutsen. "Five of our 23 employees in Norway are women, as are seven of the eight members of our U.S. team. Historically, like the culinary industry, women aren't well represented in aquaculture. We are hoping to change that by supporting education in the field and with the opportunity to work at our farm."

Kvarøy Arctic CEO Alf-Gøran Knutsen.

"This is only one of two international scholarships available from the James Beard Foundation," says James Beard Foundation Impact Programs Manager Emily Rothkrug. "We are proud to support the leadership shown by Kvarøy Arctic to develop the first-of-its-kind scholarship for women in aquaculture."

Application forms are available digitally at jamesbeard.org/scholarships. All scholarship application materials must be submitted by June 11, 2020. Scholarship winners will be notified in August 2020.

About Kvarøy Arctic

Located on the remote island of Kvarøy in Norway, Kvarøy Arctic was founded in 1976 by fish farming visionary Alf Olsen and his son Geir. They started with 3,000 salmon. Now, Geir's children—Gjermund Olsen, Håvard Olsen, and Ida Knutsen—together with CEO Alf-Gøran Knutsen and a team of 23 people, raise 2 million Atlantic salmon a year in ASC certified sites. Their shared grand vision to maintain responsible farming practices while providing a healthy source of protein for a growing world has led them to set new industry standards in sustainability, with a pioneering feed model and thoughtful leadership in site management and fish health.

Kvarøy Arctic has the merroir of Norway's cold, clear waters with delicate marine flavors and slight brininess. The fish is available through distributors and in the fresh case at select U.S. Whole Foods Market's with the designation "Whole Foods Atlantic Farm Raised Salmon—Product of Norway." It is one of a small number of farm-raised fish certified by the American Heart Association's® Heart-Check program.
