Sourced from the MSC certified ISA/Kodiak/ Copper River fisheries in Alaska and Canada.
All salmon raised in Australia is farmed. Whilst Australia has very high standards for aquaculture practises, we believe wild is best.
The Alaskan and Canadian Salmon fisheries are some of the best managed and most sustainable in the world. Pacific salmon spawn only once and then they die. 50% of the wild salmon stock is allowed to run the great rivers of this region to spawn. So from the outset a smaller percentage of wild salmon is targeted for catch each year with a guarantee of stock for the years to come. There are very few fisheries around the world that can say that they are under fishing a species by 50%.
Due to a short fishing season of the Alaskan and Canadian Salmon, much of the stock is frozen,canned or smoked. We purchase whole fish that are frozen at sea, pre rigor mortis, which traps all the goodness in the fish. This means that as well as being fished in a sustainable manner in the first place the fish has a lower carbon foot print in transit as well. The bulk order of wild fish can be shipped rather than air freighted. This wild caught Sock eye Salmon has an omega 3 oil count 40% higher than any other wild fish.
The deep red/orange colour is from a natural diet rich in prawns and shellfish.
Alaskan and Canadian wild caught Sock Eye Salmon is in a supreme league of its own.
