Farmed Salmon

We carry many options of Farmed Salmon.

Chilean Salmon, North Sea Salmon, Canadian Salmon, Verlasso Salmon, Ora King Salmon, Bay of Fundy Salmon, and Sixty South Salmon.   

Chilean Salmon market pricing is trending back up. Prices are up due to availability to the U.S. and many farms have an abundance of smaller fish.

Canadian Salmon market prices are still up due to bad weather and limited availability.

Please call your sales rep for pricing and availability

This salmon is naturally raised; Antibiotic Free, Chemical Free, Preservative Free, and Hormone Free. The feed is comprised of all natural and sustainable resources. And unlike other farm raised salmon Wild Isle Salmon is raised in the open ocean of the Shetland Islands, and not in a Loch or Bay like other farms raised salmons.
