DNB banker keeps faith in land based

Fish Farmer - - European News -

THE world’s largest seafood bank DNB still has faith in the land based salmon farm­ing seg­ment, de­spite the re­cent set­back in Den­mark.

Anne Hvis­ten­dahl, global head of Seafood, DNB, told the re­cent North At­lantic Seafood Fo­rum in Ber­gen that it had not lost hope in tis cus­tomer At­lantic Sap­phire.

‘You don’t fore­see that it can go like this as a com­pany,’ said Hvis­ten­dahl. ‘It is early and it is risky. But we be­lieve they will be suc­cess­ful.

‘Even though sev­eral at­tempts have gone wrong, we be­lieve, that their tech­nol­ogy will suc­ceed.’

The DNB seafood boss said the bank, the first to of­fer fi­nance for At­lantic Sap­phire’s Mi­ami op­er­a­tion, would cer­tainly be fund­ing more land based salmon farms world­wide.

‘We ex­pect to do more land based farm loans. It might be in Ja­pan or other coun­tries, but it might also be in Nor­way,’ she said.
