You asked for it, you got it! This 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 Irish 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.
