BGCL runs family based breeding programme for Atlantic Salmon. The strains has been continuously selected for faster growth, robustness, late maturation and harvest quality.

Genomic Selection is used to improve robustness by selecting for resistance to Caligus sea lice and Salmon Rickettsial Syndrome (SRS). The IPN QTL is used to improve resistance to Infectious Pancreatic Necrosis virus.

Eggs are produced in highly biosecure facilities under the strict supervision of our qualified team of specialists.

Benchmark is creating a pool of genomics IP with the technology already developed in SalmoBreed, StofnFiskur and Akvaforsk Genetics, combined with genomic approaches developed in Chile for Atlantic Salmon. BGCL and the Chilean industry will benefit from access to this IP and experience in the Benchmark Genetics team.
