Norwegian RAS builder, Pure Salmon Technology, has been tapped to build the first salmon RAS project in Saudi Arabia.

Topian, a NEOM food company based in Saudi Arabia, signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with Pure Salmon on Feb. 7, ahead of the Saudi International Marine Exhibition & Conference (Feb. 10-11).

Topian also signed an agreement with The National Livestock and Fisheries Development Program and the National Aquaculture Group.

“We are thrilled to announce Pure Salmon’s strategic collaboration with Topian, the NEOM Food Company, to reshape the future of the aquaculture industry,” Pure Salmon founder and chairman, Stephane Farouze, said in a statement. “This partnership underscores our shared commitment to innovation, sustainability, and food security — a commitment that resonates with the Saudi Vision 2030.”

NEOM launched Topian in 2023 as a company subsidiary focused on sustainable food systems in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.
