Irish Organic Salmon
Off-shore net pens, Ireland
This crazy popular, delicious,
sustainably farmed salmon has a pedigree that gives its wild counterpart a run for its money. The Irish Organic Salmon Company has full control over the whole process. The broodstock begins in freshwater, then after a period the salmon are moved to protected saltwater cages and finally to pristine fast-moving waters off the coast. Low-density pens give them plenty of room to swim against the strong current, which promotes a firmer texture and less fat. That is why these farmed salmon are more like wild salmon than other farmed varieties.
Their feed is certified organic and GMO-free, and no chemicals or medicines are used. The farm is certified by the Irish Organic Farmers and Growers Association Naturland (Germany), BioSuisse Organic, Freedom Foods, and GlobalGAP Aquaculture.

Trawl, line, or net caught, Iceland
Icelandic cod is the same species as the more familiar Atlantic cod but a separate stock. It comes from the chilly waters around Iceland and is much larger and more migratory (thus leaner) than its overfished cousin.
Cod is firm with large, succulent flakes, and it has a mild flavor. You can do almost anything with it—unlike most fish, it stands up to hearty sauces. It is great for fish and chips, and It is good sautéed, steamed, baked, and fried. Seafood Watch rates Icelandic Cod a "Good Alternative," and it is MSC certified. Low to moderate mercury level. Kosher.

We are selling this product because a dietician recommended it for a friend with heart issues. It contains only salt, spices, and dehydrated onion and garlic, and it is the secret ingredient that some say makes Gibsons steaks so good.
