nova sea

Nova Sea AS has its origins in four key salmon companies in Helgeland: The fish-farming company Seafarm Invest and the salmon harvest station Nova Sea at/in Lovund, Torris Products at Halsa in Meløy and Marine Harvest at Bolga in Meløy. Three of the four founding companies were amongst the first salmon farming companies in Nord-Helgeland, and commenced operation as early as 1972. The original Nova Sea AS was established as a fishing industry company in 1985 at Naustholmen, Lovund.

Development since then has been nothing less than incredible. In the early days production was centred on Saithe filleting and the production of white-meat salmon mince, slaughtering/packing and sales/exports of salmon. Naustholmen Fryseri AS was established at the same location in 1989, and the packing and freezing capacity was greatly increased. From 1994 the company concentrated solely on the harvest /packing and deep-freezing of salmon.

The investment company Seafarm Invest was established in 1991 as a separate company for the acquisition of salmon farming licenses. In 1997 the acquired companies were merged into the parent company, and from the same year Seafarm Invest could be considered purely as a fish-farming company. Hydro Seafood AS (Marine Harvest Norway AS) came in as co-owners in the mid-1990s. During the same period Nova Sea AS and Naustholmen Fryseri merged into a single company. In the autumn of 2006 the boards of the old Nova Sea AS and Seafarm Invest AS voted to merge the two companies. The new company kept the already familiar name; Nova Sea AS.

Steinar Olaisen was one of Norway’s pioneers in salmon farming and the founder of Nova Sea AS. Sadly, he passed away the summer of 2011. Even after his passing, Nova Sea AS is still managed according to his life philosophy of honesty, integrity and moderation, with full focus on quality. His dream is now supported by a team of employees that over the course of 40 years have acquired a wealth of experience and expertise in this demanding field.
