About us

The company

Leading producer of feed ingredients from sustainable marine and aquaculture sources

Scanbio Marine Group is established in Trondheim, Norway, with production facilities in Bjugn and Lysøysund, Norway and transport vessels along Norwegian the coastline. Scanbio is a leading Norwegian producer of highly nutritious fish protein concentrates and fish oils which are valuable ingredients for the aquaculture feed, animal feed, Petfood, and bio-fuel markets from pelagic, white fish and salmon by-products.  The Company’s business addresses the growing global market demand for protein ingredients from sustainable and renewable sources.

Sustainability is a core value for ScanBio. No fish is caught specifically to supply our factories.

Our history

A story that began in 1909

waste management

It all started after the extremely rich herring season of 1909 during which Skipper Peter Jakobsen could not get his catch sold to salting because of the size of the fish. So much blood, sweat and danger behind a catch that did not give any profit. Mr Jakobsen with his brother then decided that this was not to happen again and fitted his fishing vessel with a cooker and a press and in 1910 had the first floating fishmeal and oil factory.

Throughout all this period a large part of the protein faze “stick water” was discharged into the sea driven by a lack of technology to handle soluble protein. During the Second World War after extensive R&D, a solution was found and patented. This technology is today widely used throughout the whole fishmeal and oil industry.
