Land-based salmon farmer Proximar Seafood has taken ownership of the entire facility in Oyama, Japan, marking the end of the company’s construction works of the first commercial Atlantic salmon farming facility built in Japan.

"Constructing the facility according to plan proves our significant progress in Japan," said Proximar CEO Joachim Nielsen. "With the construction now behind us, we can switch all our focus over to operations and production, where we remain on track with our plan of first harvest in the third quarter of 2024."
