Product Descriptions

Raw, smoked, canned, or planked, salmon is one of the most versatile and popular fishes in the world. Salmon farms throughout the world make this fish economically accessible year round and bolster its popularity by supplying consistent quality. Catalina Offshore Products focuses on sushi grade salmon producers and selects from sustainable and responsible British Columbia farms.

Atlantic Salmon is the most popular species grown . The species Atlantic refers to a species, not a region, and therefore can create some confusion to the consumer when grown in the Pacific Ocean. British Columbia's Farmed Atlantic Salmon are specifically raised to suit sushi production standards.

British Columbia Farmed Salmon has an amazing pink flesh color, high Omega 3's, and a unique rich taste. Recently, Salmon Farms have increased their standards to minimize their environmental impacts in surrounding waters, and to maximize the natural components of fish feed. Throughout the world Salmon farms currently compete on the basis of environmental soundness and unique taste, keeping standards high for many of the top producing farms. British Columbia farms are recognized around the world for setting strict environmental standards which are reviewed by local and international agencies. There is very little waste in farmed salmon production, as the eggs are processed for a sushi product called Ikura, the bones are often ground up for fish meal and heads are used as baiting live traps.

British Columbia Salmon is often preferred over Wild Salmon because its quality and taste can be consistently controlled. The high fat content allows a greater variety of cooking methods over wild salmon which tends to be a little drier. Whether in a raw or cooked presentation, Atlantic Salmon from British Columbia is a delicious and sustainable choice.
