Sustainability is more than a name with David Roberts of Sustainable Blue
October 24, 2023 By Jean Ko Din
Sustainable Blue has captured Washington State’s interest for its zero wastewater discharge system for Atlantic salmon. David Roberts, chief sustainability officer, talks about the origins of its first facility in Nova Scotia, Canada and hints at the company’s plans for a new facility in the United States. Roberts says that sustainability must be incorporated into all aspects of a recirculating aquaculture system (RAS) and in this episode, he shares how the company is working to fulfill the promise of its name while also being profitable.
