We source organic salmon farmed in Ireland. Compared to Scotland and Norway, where mass production dominates in still–water loughs and fjords, Ireland’s small, exclusively organic farms on the wild Atlantic coast collectively produce a tiny one per cent of Europe’s fresh salmon.
Irish husbandry and the conditions for deep sea cultivation are amongst the best in the world and from our experience produces the only farmed fish that is good enough for hang smoking.
Even with organic fish, there are variations in quality. We buy the finest grade from the most experienced producers, and we are proud of our association with MOWI Ireland.
Strong currents, the exposed sites of the west coast, and low stocking densities practiced by our suppliers are essential to healthy fish with toned flesh.
These conditions also reduce the risk of disease and environmental degradation. The salmon are fed a natural marine and vegetal feed, free from GM products and chemical additives or preservatives, and they are matured for a minimum of three years.
The result is non–fatty, flavourful fish with good muscle tone.
