Seafood companies need to re-examine packaging methods, feed options, energy consumption, waste streams, and how they ship products, putting sustainability at the top of each employee's agenda, according to Leroy Seafood Group CEO Henning Beltestad.

Salmon farmer and whitefish catcher Leroy sells 80 million seafood meals globally every day and is active in several parts of the value chain. This reach, said Beltestad, comes with lots of opportunities but also big responsibilities in terms of sustainability.

“Have the industry and Leroy got the right people to cope with what’s coming?” he asked during a presentation at North Atlantic Seafood Forum in Bergen last month.
