fish farm is a family business and has been for three generations. Our grandfather, Alf Olsen, a fish farming pioneer in northern Norway, founded the company in 1976 together with our father Geir.
Gjermund and Håvard (Geir sons), and Alf-Gøran (son in law), and we grew up on and around the farm. After taking it over in 2008, we continued to develop Kvarøy based on the core concept established by our forefathers: offering salmon of very high quality, without compromising either our environment or the welfare of our fish..
Our core concept
- offering salmon of very high quality, without compromising either our environment or the welfare of our fish.
we are proud to say that we are, and have always been, at the forefront of sustainable fish farming. We are equally proud of being able to provide a long term livelihood for our employees and a sustainable future for the inhabit-ants of this beautiful island. But most of all, we are proud that more and more people in an increasing number of countries are discovering the fine taste of Kvarøy salmon.

We know it’s a cliché, but we’ll say it anyway: we would be nothing without our employees. In fact it’s a little strange to even call them our employees, given that they also are our neighbours and friends. This makes for a closeknit, hands-on working environment, where people know and care for each other, even outside of office hours.
