Steelhead is a cross between trout and salmon. Like the other farmed fish we offer, these fish are raised without the use of antibiotics, hormones, or chemicals. Their flavor is milder than salmon, and they have a tender texture.
They are raised in pure Rocky Mountain spring water and are fed a diet containing the same micronutrients that ocean steelhead eat. Thus they have the same deep-red flesh as their wild counterparts.
Riverence steelhead works in partnership with FishWise, the James Beard Foundation, OceanWise, and TroutEx. Seafood Watch rates these steelhead a "Best Choice." Low mercury level. Kosher.

hugely expensive. We would argue that Kyuquot Sound farmed sablefish gives its wild cousin a run for the money.
