8F Asset Management and Pure Salmon, the land-based salmon farming company, have announced a new 10,000 tons per annum Recirculating Aquaculture System (RAS) facility in Brunei.

The US$180m state-of-the-art Atlantic salmon farm will be developed in partnership with The Strategic Development Capital Fund, Brunei Darussalam. The Strategic Development Capital Fund is a Brunei Government Trust Sub-Fund established to provide long-term financial sustainability for the country, through diversification of investments that will generate economic growth.

The new Pure Salmon project perfectly fulfils this goal, not only providing sustainable salmon products free of antibiotics, pesticides, hormones and microplastics, but also by bringing a new industry to the country as the first land-based salmon farm in South-East Asia. Once complete, the project, which is due to commence in Q3 of 2020, will generate up to 145 local jobs, serve as a model example for other countries to follow and also contribute effectively to the local economy. From a national perspective, the project will
also attract significant foreign direct investment for Brunei, with numerous global investors having already expressed an intention to participate.
