Fish farming is a licensed, strictly regulated and controlled business. Operations are located by the sea and Finland’s inland waters. The newest form of fish farming, recirculating aquaculture, involves recycling and cleaning the water used. The  fish  farming  sector  manages  its  environmental, economic and social responsibilities in business and production methods. Farmers comply with high ethical values, including animal welfare and environmental protection regulations, the protection of cultivated fish, and occupational safety. Water management is integral to modern fish farming.
