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 pricing is holding steady. Prices are still up due to availability to the U.S.  Many farms have shifted their production to other countries, like Russian and Brazil.

Canadian Salmon farms are having sizing and availability issues, which has reduced the amount of product into the market, and has increased prices.

Please call your sales rep for pricing and availability.

Wild Isles Natural Salmon

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.
