Salmo salar

This applies to Norwegian salmon, for instance, which are bred in the cold, clear Norwegian fjords that characterise the 21,000 kilometres of Norwegian coastline. Norwegian salmon have optimal growth conditions and a quality that has made them famous throughout the world.

The salmon are farmed in salt water in huge cages anchored in the fjords, where they’re sheltered by thousands of islands and towering cliffs. The temperate waters of the Gulf Stream flow along the coast, and bring just the right quantity of nutrients.

All salmon production in Norway is subject to rigorous control and quality requirements. Marine farming is conducted in harmony with nature, with the greatest possible respect for the environment.

These salmon are caught on lines in Canadian rivers where they’ve grown up under natural conditions. The result is a fish that lends its distinctive, subtle flavour to all delicate fish dishes.
