For the past twenty years, we have worked with smolt farms in the Faroe Islands but have since 2015 seriously prioritized the development of the services we can offer the aquaculture industry. SMJ has developed into a consultant with extensive knowledge of aquacultural breeding facilities and associated systems. Our services include everything from conceptual design to the smallest detail. There is a heavy emphasis on offering high-quality advice regarding technology, biology and the environment in order to issue quality overall solutions.

In aquaculture, two main conditions must be addressed; it is the technical systems and the biology. Therefore, it is necessary to work out an overall assessment when an aquacultural facility is to be built or renovated. At SMJ, highly skilled people with extensive knowledge of both technical systems and biology work together, all under the same roof. It creates a framework for strong interdisciplinary collaboration and helps to optimize the project and the service to the customer.

At SMJ, we want to take the lead. In our professional environment, the focus is on the customer, the task and collaboration. We offer to take the initiative and make the decision-making process easier for our customers.

Our foreign initiatives in fish farming are organized under the name SMJ Aqua, and for this, please refer to the website, which is the same company with a different name.
