Atlantic Salmon

Sustainably-Farmed Salmon

We go for farmed Atlantic salmon when it's satisfyingly rich and clean-tasting, with a distinctly salmony flavor. All the better when it's sustainably farmed. Atlantic salmon is luxuriously good, even when it's simply broiled. Seared-crisp, the skin is delicious too. Choose from 2 or 3 lbs. of salmon. We deliver it skin-on, cut into fillets.

Atlantic Salmon

(Salmo salar)

Wild Atlantic salmon's habitat was severely threatened by industrialization. Commercial fishing of Atlantic salmon has long been prohibited. Maintaining a consistent supply of good, sustainably-farmed salmon is an ongoing project for us.

  • Wild salmon gets its characteristic orange-pink color from carotenoids in the crustaceans it eats. Farmed versions are fed carotene-rich vitamins instead.
  • After meeting our top priorities in selecting farmed salmon––clean flavor and firm texture––we look for low feed-to-fish ratios. We believe this is the key to sustainable fish farming.
  • Salmon are piscivores. While a partially plant-based diet may be a good thing for farmed salmon, we avoid farms that use feed containing meat byproducts and unnecessary antibiotics and hormones.
  • Fishwatch––the National Marine Fisheries Sustainability report––describes the strict prohibition on fishing wild Atlantic salmon.
