Characteristics

CharacteristicsFarmed salmon is one of the most popular seafood choices in the United States. Modern salmon production provides us with a consistent supply of flavorful, nutritious protein at a great price. Our skin-on fillets are “D” trim meaning the backbone and belly bone are trimmed off, along with the back fin, collarbone, fins, and pin bones. The fillets are fully trimmed, with all the belly fat and tail removed. The skin-off fillets are “E” trim and offer the highest yield and most uniformity.

For Your Waitstaff

Wait StaffAlthough salmon is incredibly popular, customers may have questions about farming practices.  We’re happy to work with you and your staff to help you understand why we purchase farmed salmon from particular companies that focus on using the most advanced, ecologically sensitive practices.  Where farms are located, ingredients in feed, controlling escapes – all of these issues and others are carefully addressed.   If customers have questions about the coloring of farmed salmon, you can let them know it comes from natural additives in the feed made from the same organisms salmon eat in the wild.
