Innovation at the heart of Quebec

At Samonix, we use an aquaculture solution that features the latest global advances in farming and the environment.

Our technology

After evaluating and visiting dozens of technologies and processes worldwide, we have chosen to implement a land-based aquaculture technology known as a Recirculating Aquaculture System, commonly referred to as RAS (pronounced “RAZ”). This technology, already deployed commercially in other countries, has proven its effectiveness.

Why this technology ?

The salmon industry undeniably benefits from the innovative solution of Recirculating Aquaculture Systems (RAS) as adopted by Samonix. By protecting oceanic ecosystems, this non-invasive process ensures a healthy habitat for our fish and provides high-quality protein to our customers. We prioritize environmental protection, and this technology allows us to recirculate 99% of the farming water, thus limiting our environmental discharge. Our efficient treatment systems enable us to regenerate the water in the tanks every 80 minutes, ensuring optimal water quality.

Environmental significance

The environmental impacts of land-based aquaculture and their impact on the consumer.

• Land based aquaculture helps to prevent the emergence of microplastics. 

• Our approach ensures the conservation of natural environments since farming is conducted inside closed buildings with strict biosecurity protocols.

• Land based aquaculture, when located near the markets, contributes to reducing greenhouse gas emissions since the salmon will now be raised closer to consumers.

• In a world where the environment is an increasing concern, our approach aligns with the major principles of Quebec’s bio-food policy.

 
 

Cleanliness and traceability

Our advanced filtration and oxygenation processes guarantee a renewal of pure water, completely free of pollutants such as plastic and diseases. Ensuring the total biosecurity of the environment of our salmon, our farming technology allows us to assist their growth from egg to plate. Increased monitoring is maintained throughout the processing period, in order to preserve the quality of clean, pollutant-free water at all times.

Responsible production

Farming Atlantic salmon in RAS close to consumer markets reduces carbon emissions and costs resulting from transporting the goods around the world. Located near consumption centers, Samonix embraces an eco-responsible and sustainable practice and offers a fresher product to its customers.

Product quality

Free of antibiotics, hormones, pesticides or microplastics, Samonix salmon is raised in a controlled and bio-safe sphere. The continuous recycling of water (99%) guarantees its purity and the absence of pathogens or parasites. The water from the salmon pools is completely regenerated every 80 minutes and always kept at a stable temperature allowing the best conditions for growing a healthy and Salmon. In our closed circuit aquaculture farm, optimal nutrition is adapted to the life cycle of the fish. Their growth flourishes in conditions that best reproduce a healthy and natural habitat.

Rich and refined nutrition

Salmon is a healthy source of complete protein. Its multiple virtues confer health benefits. Rich in omega-3 fatty acids, it contributes to heart health, reduces inflammation, lowers blood pressure and provides good cholesterol. It is an excellent source of vitamin B, potassium and antioxidants. Succulent and delicate, Samonix salmon can be prepared in a multitude of delicious ways.

You have to focus on important things, but

The difference
lies in Detail

Fishery can mean either the enterprise of raising or harvesting fish and other aquatic life; or more commonly, the site where such enterprise takes place. Commercial fisheries include wild fisheries and fish farms, both in freshwater bodies and the oceans .
About 500 million people worldwide are economically dependent on fisheries. 171 million tonnes of fish were produced in 2021, but overfishing is an increasing problem, causing declines in some populations.
