Gallagher_Irish_Organic_Salmon

At Tropical, we work with premium certified Organic* Salmon farms located in Ireland and Norway. In doing so, we are able to ensure product availability 52 weeks a year.

This week, we will begin offering fresh Irish Organic* Salmon from Gallagher's Ocean Farm Ltd., a branch of Gallagher Bros. Fish Merchants Ltd.; which is a family owned business founded in 1919 by two brothers, Jack and Phil Gallagher.

Since 1985 Gallagher's Ocean Farm Ltd., has been responsibly producing salmon on the West Coast of Ireland. Gallagher's organic* salmon production takes place off the Donegal Atlantic Coast. The salmon is farmed according to the EU Organic standard and certified by Global Trust. After several years of expansion Gallagher's Ocean Farm is anticipating the ability of harvesting year-round.

When cultivating Organic* Salmon, Gallagher's Ocean Farm gives priority to the health and wellbeing of each fish and to the farm's surrounding environment:
  • One of the most differentiating criteria in Organic* fish farming is that the fish are fed a diet that is completely GMO Free. The feed is made of Non-GMO (Genetically Modified Organisms) components such as, natural pigments (phaffia) and high marine content from sustainable fisheries. This results in a salmon with vibrant pink flesh color and rich in Omega-3.
  • The salmon are raised in a low-density environment (10 kg fish per m3), fully exposed to the strong, clean currents of the Atlantic Ocean - this ensures vigorous exercise, firm muscle formation and low fat content.
  • The fish spend an average of 18 months in deep-water pens where they swim the equivalent of 13,000 Kilometers (8077mi) before reaching market size.
  • Farming sites are fallowed (uncultivated) for a minimum of 4 months after the site is empty - compared to 2 months for conventional sites.

Gallagher's Irish Organic* Salmon are harvested to the highest standards and dispatched within 24 hours. With arrivals direct to JFK and BOS, we are able to maintain freshness in every fish and deliver the most superior farmed Organic* Salmon available in the U.S. market.

Fresh Irish Organic* Salmon is available whole in 50 Lbs. catch weight cases. Click here for product details.
