DSM-Firmenich has launched a new version of its animal and environmental monitoring service Sustell, which can provide life cycle analysis (LCA) data for sea bass and sea bream aquaculture.

Sustainable aquaculture practices are key to future industry success as well as ensuring good welfare for livestock, which Sustell's expanded platform promises to help achieve.

DSM-Firmenich has launched a marine fish module for Sustell, allowing aquaculture producers of sea bass and sea bream to map the full environmental footprint of their operations.

In 2022 the company launched Sustell for salmon, with salmon producer Bakkafrost as a development cooperation partner.

The company says that Sustell is backed by robust methodology, ISO certification and data connectivity, and aims to be a leading life cycle assessment (LCA) solution for animal protein. It claims 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. 

Louise Buttle, Sustell lead for aqua and global key account manager at DSM-Firmenich shared their views in a press release, saying: “Now marine fish producers of species such as salmonids, seabass and sea bream can conduct full life cycle assessment at scale, ensuring a return on investment and providing a credible and accurate footprint.”
