Here is a little about our salmon!
Adult male and female fish are anaesthetized. Eggs and sperm
are "stripped", after the fish are cleaned and cloth dried. Sperm and eggs are
mixed, washed, and placed into fresh water. Adults recover in flowing, clean,
well aerated water. Some researchers have even studied cryopreservation of their
Fry (babies) are generally reared in large freshwater tanks for 12 to 20 months.
Once the fish have reached the smolt (adolescent) phase, they are taken out to
sea where they are held for up to two years. During this time the fish grow and
mature in large cages off the coasts of Canada, the USA, or parts of Europe.
Generally, cages are made of two nets. Inner nets, which wrap around the cages,
hold the salmon. Outer nets, which are held by floats, keep predators out.
We have our salmon directly shipped to our warehouse daily where we clean and
fillet our whole fish per your order.
