What is it about salmon that makes us miss it so much during the off season? Fortunately, our friends at the Irish Organic Salmon Company are producing a delicious, sustainably farmed salmon that many actually prefer to the wild version.
The Irish Organic Salmon Company has full control over the whole process—from broodstock to processing. The salmon begin in freshwater, then are moved to protected saltwater cages and finally to pristine fast-moving waters off the coast of north and Northern Ireland. The low-density pens give them plenty of room to swim against the strong current. This strenuous activity 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. Low mercury level. Kosher.
