dsm-firmenich unveiled a marine fish module for Sustell™, allowing aquaculture producers of seabass and seabream to map the full environmental footprint of their operations.

First introduced to terrestrial species, in 2022, dsm-firmenich launched Sustell™ for salmon with salmon producer Bakkafrost as a development cooperation partner. Backed by robust methodology, ISO certification and data connectivity, Sustell™ is a life cycle assessment (LCA) solution for animal protein. Sustell™ provides the food value chain with a credible, science-based approach to collecting farm data, measuring the environmental footprint, and mapping a course for further development of the animal protein industry.

“Now marine fish producers of species such as salmonids, seabass and seabream can conduct full life cycle assessments at scale, ensuring a strong return on investment and providing a credible and accurate footprint, and a great user experience. Extending the Sustell™ platform to include seabass and seabream is a demonstration of dsm-firmenich’s commitment and continued innovations to further develop the sustainable production of seafood through aquaculture,” said Louise Buttle, Sustell lead for Aqua & global key account manager at dsm-firmenich.
