Atlantic Sapphire now delivers a fresh from Florida product at rapid speeds with a fraction of the carbon footprint.

Atlantic Sapphire Revolutionizes the Salmon Industry with Sustainable, U.S. Raised Bluehouse Salmon Product

  (UNITED STATES, 10/12/2020)

Atlantic Sapphire is revolutionizing the salmon industry with its proprietary, sustainably sourced Bluehouse Salmon. Raised onshore in Florida, the new premium salmon product is not only good for the consumer, but also good for the environment. Bluehouse Salmon's first Florida harvest will be available at select retailers across the nation beginning in October 2020, with amplified distribution in November 2020.

With a vision to lead the salmon farming industry towards a more sustainable future, Norwegian salmon entrepreneurs Johan Andreassen and Bjorn-Vegard Lovik founded Atlantic Sapphire in 2010. The duo originally established Villa Organic — the first Norwegian organic salmon farming company. However, with 90 percent of wild fisheries unable to sustain current demand, the team envisioned an even better alternative and worked to create a commercial pilot of a Bluehouse™ in Denmark. Their vision didn't stop there – with a successful pilot run in Denmark under their belts – Andreassen and Lovik worked to identify the perfect location for a full-scale Bluehouse™ in the U.S.

Atlantic Sapphire Chief Executive Officer Johan Andreassen said, "with the creation of our proprietary Bluehouse™ we knew we had the potential to have an enormous impact on the salmon industry, and with much of the seafood imported into the United States, we wanted to continue to make a positive contribution by seeking out a location that would further reduce our carbon footprint."

Bluehouse salmon is USA-raised and ocean safe.

As a result, Atlantic Sapphire built an innovative Bluehouse™ in Miami, Fla. The revolutionary Bluehouse™ serves as the equivalent of a greenhouse. Fish are given ideal conditions to thrive with a 95 percent water-to-fish-ratio and the ability to swim against strong currents as they would in the wild. The first of its kind, the Miami Bluehouse brings a new level of purity to the product with water sourced from the Floridian Aquifer — an ancient artesian aquifer that naturally purifies water through limestone rock. As such, the water has never been exposed to man-made contamination, like microplastics. Ten years in the making, cutting edge technology yields a product that not only helps alleviate the pressure on wild fisheries, but also eliminates environmental concerns associated with conventional salmon farming; the harvest serves as a pivotal moment in shaping the industry towards a greener tomorrow.

Raised without antibiotics or hormones, Bluehouse delivers USA-raised land-farmed salmon you can feel good about.

Bluehouse Salmon is heart-healthy, ocean safe, free of antibiotics and hormones. With 80 percent of the seafood in the United States imported, pioneering Bluehouse® salmon farming locally and transforming protein production globally, the technology bridges the gap between increased demand and limited supply. In addition, Atlantic Sapphire now delivers a fresh from Florida product at rapid speeds with a fraction of the carbon footprint.

While the first U.S. harvest will only be available at select retailers, the company is poised for exponential growth with nationwide distribution on the horizon as early as November 2020.  

The Atlantic Sapphire team successfully transferred its first batch of Atlantic salmon from fresh to saline water sourced directly from the Floridan Aquifer in October.
