Grieg Seafood (OSE: GSF) is an international seafood company with fish farms in Rogaland and Finnmark in Norway, British Columbia and Shetland. The company specializes in fresh Atlantic salmon. It has an annual production of 80,000 tonnes of salmon and trout. The company is based in Bergen, Norway, and listed on the Oslo Stock Exchange.

The company was listed on July 20, 2007. The largest owners are Grieg Holdings (40.63%) and Halde Invest (20.54%). The corporation was previously a subsidiary of the Grieg Group, and is still co-located with its largest owner in Downtown Bergen. In 2006, the company performed a merger with Volden Group[1] and has previously also operated in Denmark and Chile.[citation needed]
