The very first Måsøval pioneers

Måsøval is a family owned aquaculture company whose main office is on the idyllic island of Frøya, at the edge of the Trøndelag coast. The company was founded by Edvin Måsøval and his sons Bjørn and Karsten in January 1973. Watch the video below for the whole story. 

In addition to Måsøval, the company's pioneers have also been involved in building and developing two of the other biggest Norwegian aquaculture companies: Salmar and Norway Royal Salmon.

"We are proud of our history. Måsøval has been here ever since the start, almost 50 years ago. My grandfather made his own net pens at home on the farm. Today, we send 2 million meals out into the world every single week," says Lars Måsøval, chair of the board in Måsøval.

In 2021, Måsøval's total production capacity in Norway is approx. 20,000 tonnes, which will increase even further when Aqua Semi's development licences are realised.

"Although we have grown quickly, it's important to us to contribute to value creation and supporting the community, beyond the financial results. We are focused on ripple effects, fish health and sustainability. We have had very good results in these areas," says Lars.

I dag eies selskapet av tredje generasjon Måsøval, Edvins barnebarn Lars og Anders. Vi har hovedkontor i Frøya kommune og har 120 ansatte. Selskapet eier  11,5 konsesjoner, i tillegg drifter vi 2 konsesjoner for AquaGen og 1 for Pure Farming.  Vi har 12 lokaliteter for matfiskproduksjon av laks i kommunene Frøya, Kristiansund, Hemne, Smøla og Aukra.
