MIAMI – Atlantic Sapphire ASA, the producer of Bluehouse Salmon – the brand revolutionizing the salmon industry with its proprietary, sustainable technology – is elated to join the OTCQX Best Market. The future of seafood is available in stores and now accessible to U.S. investors looking to make an impact.
The Company, originally established in Norway, is already indexed on the main list of the Norwegian stock exchange Oslo Børs. With a vision to propel the animal protein production industry towards a more sustainable future, the Company established roots in Florida and celebrated its first U.S. harvest of Atlantic salmon in fall of 2020. Raised responsibly onshore in Florida, with 95% of water sourced from the Floridian saltwater Aquifer, Bluehouse Salmon is transforming the future of food with zero impact on coastal areas and at a fraction of the carbon footprint of fish imported by air. Contrary to the restricted growth prospects of the conventional sea-based salmon farming industry due to biological constraints, Atlantic Sapphire’s unique technology allows for rapid volume growth. With amplified U.S. distribution, joining OTCQX, a premium US market operated by OTC Markets Group, was a natural progression for the company.
Atlantic Sapphire Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Johan Andreassen said, “since the first U.S. harvest in September 2020, our Bluehouse Salmon has expanded its retail footprint to more than 1,000 locations, with more and more stores coming online as we continue to ramp-up production towards our 2031 target of 220,000 tons of harvest, the equivalent of almost 1 billion servings a year. As the world’s largest land-based salmon farming company with primary operations in the U.S., we’re thrilled to be quoted on a U.S. market and to further diversify our investor base as we expand operations.”
Atlantic Sapphire’s groundbreaking, cutting-edge technology and aquaculture yield a healthy product that helps eliminates environmental concerns associated with conventional salmon farming. Bluehouse Salmon has a delicious mild flavor, is sushi grade and Non-GMO, is raised without antibiotics or pesticides in a water source free of micro plastics for an unmatched farm to fork freshness. As an innovator shaping the industry for a greener tomorrow, investors looking to make a difference can find Atlantic Sapphire ASA on OTCQX under the symbol “AASZF” starting today.
