The Micarna Group founded the joint venture KM Seafood together with its project partner, Kirschauer Aquakulturen. This joint venture has been part of the Micarna Group since 2015 and sustainably produces fish in aquacultures with the aim of leaving the smallest possible environmental footprint behind in the process. The sustainable seafood production in eastern Germany is a worldwide unique project, for which those in charge at KM Seafood have in recent years acquired the necessary specialists and also built the appropriate production facility – always with the objective of breeding fish in aquacultures year round and thus ensuring sustainable seafood products in the region. The closed cycle means that the traceability of the fish is ensured at all times.

The demand for sustainably produced, fresh seafood products available all year round is steadily growing. At the same time, the fish population in our waters is decreasing. For this reason, the Micarna Group has been working intensively in the recent years on the reproduction and growing of fish in so-called recirculation systems - always with the aim of producing fish from sustainable sources all year round without leaving a large ecological footprint.The young fish come from the company's own fish farm in eastern Germany and are raised and processed regionally in Birsfelden. In this way, Micarna has the entire value chain in its own hands. In this way, origin, food safety, animal welfare, environmental impact and processing quality can be 100% guaranteed throughout all stations of the value chain.
