Fish Movement Design Engineer

When joining Atlantic Sapphire, you are not only working in a company that cares about people’s health and well-being, but also for the health of our planet.

Atlantic Sapphire salmon is raised in a revolutionary Bluehouse TM – the equivalent of a greenhouse where fish are given ideal conditions to thrive. Atlantic Sapphire was founded in 2010. We are a Norwegian publicly- traded company with headquarters in Miami. Our first commercial and fully operational Bluehouse TM was built in Denmark in 2011 and the first salmon was hatched in Florida in November 2018 where the company is constructing the largest Bluehouse in the world in Homestead in Miami-Dade County.

Consumers in North America can try our mild tasting, antibiotic free, and eco-friendly product when asking by name for Bluehouse Salmon – available in retail stores and restaurants from California to Florida. And if in Europe, look for our exquisite Sapphire Salmon.
