SCOTTISH SALMON from WILD ISLES
I have always tried to follow certain rules in my personal and professional life. A very important one is quality over quantity, and that applies to our Salmon. Yes, I could buy cheap $6/lb salmon that you see at local stores and make more profit, but that is not me nor my motto.
Instead, I get the best farm-raised salmon in the world! Many top restaurants use the same Wild Isles salmon as we do, including Spago Beverly Hills, Fleming’s Steak House, Nick+Stef’s, and many others. These restaurants also charge much more than we do for this fish.
At $14/lb for this salmon, it’s hard to make a profit, but I can’t serve poison. That’s what I believe American farm-raised salmon is— full of antibiotics, artificial feed, and coloring. Disgusting.
This Scottish Salmon lives in the open ocean and it’s the best option all year round because Wild Salmon season is very short and prices are double, usually hovering around $25 to $30/lb.
If you Google the worst things to eat, farmed Salmon is on everybody’s list except for this Scottish one.
Wild Isles salmon is widely considered the salmon that every other farmed salmon is measured against. Sustainably raised in the wild, open ocean waters of the Shetland Islands’ & North Atlantic Islands’ rugged coastline. It’s this unique environment which gives this fish its firm texture, lean flesh, and buttery sweet flavor that chef’s around the world have come to demand.
RSPCA Freedom Food, & Global G.A.P (Good Aquaculture Practices), approved sustainable farming, and extremely low stocking densities make Wild Isles salmon farms one of the best in the world.
Every stage of the salmon’s life cycle is carefully monitored and evaluated to ensure environmental stewardship and quality of life, to produce the highest quality and best tasting salmon in the world.
Wild, crashing, open seas in the North Atlantic (not in Loch’s or sea rivers). Farms are located in the wide-open sea in powerful currents where the North Sea & North Atlantic Ocean meet – constant surging, clear, fresh, and clean water. Natural habitat allows salmon to swim against strong 5+ knot ocean currents, developing the strongest & healthiest of fish.
Extremely low socking densities, with a maximum density of 98.3% Water to 1.7% fish. Farm sites are constantly rotated and fallowed. “ECO-NET” plastic pens are used at sites to prevent escapes (keeping their shape & structure, even if cut, unlike standard pens). Lumpsucker fish are used to symbiotically live with the salmon and control sea lice instead of using chemical treatments. Strong ocean currents maintain clean seabed.
Marine fish meal & oil is mainly sourced from sustainably managed fisheries and/or fish trimmings from fish caught for human consumption. GMO Free, Parasite Free Ingredients. Free of land-based animal proteins.
