SalmoBreed is headquartered in Bergen, Norway and is part of Benchmark Genetics (BG). Our main activity is the supply of salmon eggs to hatcheries in Norway and other countries where salmon is farmed.

Our sister company are StofnFiskur in Iceland (salmon ova), Spring Genetics headquartered in Miami (Tilapia), Genética Spring located in Cartagena, Colombia (Shrimp) and Akvaforsk Genetics located in Sunndalsøra. Our activities require highly skilled employees in several different areas. Therefore we are always looking for new employees that can make us even better to support our customers.

Some examples of the skills companies in Benchmark Genetics need are:

Genetics: to ensure that we deliver eggs/fry/PL/PPL with the properties that are important to our customers, BG operates a complex breeding programmes. Using various genetic tools we select parent animals that produce the best custom results.

Biology and fish health: we are dealing with live animals. We need employees who observe that our fishes are well, remain healthy and that their welfare is safeguarded. We also work providing our customers with advice when they encounter challenges in their production.

Practical farming skills: several of BG companies host fishes/shrimp and need skilled practitioners to ensure that our fishes live under good conditions, that all equipment at the facilities work properly and that we operate in accordance with the legal requirements.

Sales and customer follow-up: Our good customer relationships are in a large extent built through trust and long time deliveries. Our customer advisors can make recommendations on what are the right products for each customer. The follow up from product delivery through incubation and further into the production is an important part of our customer support. For this we need a sales team that has knowledge about fish farming and understands what the challenges of our customers are.

Our mother company Benchmark also has activities in areas other than genetics. For more information about which competences Benchmark needs, see the following web pages:
