American Atlantic Salmon Genetics

There is no volume supply of domestic Atlantic Salmon Eggs available in the US today. Most salmon producers have to rely on imports. In parts of the US and Canada, local genetics are required for Salmon farming. Local genetics reduces potential regulatory, biosecurity, and supply risks for domestic farmers. It is also an excellent option for international customers. We work with the St Johns Strain from Maine that has been developed for farming through several generations. SalmoGen is accelerating performance development for this strain.​

SalmoGen has strategic collaboration with Center for Aquaculture Technologies, Innovasea, an experienced advisory board, USDA, and others to accelerate a broodstock program adapted for land-based production.
