  Print In order to bring you a year-round supply of fresh Organic salmon, we work with premium, organic certified farms that are strategically located in multiple locations. This month, we will begin offering fresh Organic Salmon produced in Shetland.

Shetland, also called the Shetland Islands, is a subarctic archipelago of Scotland and lies northeast of the Island of Great Britain. Here, the fast-flowing clear water not only maintains a clean seabed, but also allows a natural habitat for salmon to swim against the tide, developing the strongest and healthier of fish.

Our Scottish Organic Salmon is produced by the largest salmon production company in Sheltland with 23-active growout licenses. All rearing, processing and packaging standards are certified by the Organic Food Federation, Naturland and Freedom Foods.

When raising an Organic Scottish Salmon, priority is given to the health and wellbeing of each fish and to the farm's surrounding environment.

Each fish is fed an organic certified diet that contains:
  • No synthetically produced pigments
  • Fishmeal produced from the off-cuts of sustainable fishers for human consumption
  • Vegetable ingredients that are of Organic origin only
  • Lower oil levels than conventional feed, leading to a slower growing, leaner fish
  • Vitamins and minerals from natural origins

The salmon are raised in a low-density environment fully exposed to strong ocean currents. The stocking density in the net pens is 10 kilograms per m3 rather than the industry standard of 20 kilograms per m3.

Growing conditions comply with strict quality control and safety standards as well as complete traceability from egg to plate. With three-weekly harvests, Organic Salmon from Shetland arrives fresh into JFK and is immediately distributed throughout the East Coast - allowing absolute freshness and optimum quality.

Scottish Organic Salmon is available in 20 Lbs. boxes. Click here for product specifications.
