Sourcing Story for Steelhead Salmon

All of our seafood is chosen in accordance with the Monterrey Bay Aquarium Seafood Watch program, which makes recommendations of seafood that is fished or farmed in practices that are best for our environment. Our steelhead salmon is labeled as Seafood Watch “Best Choice.” We source it from the innovative Pacific Aquaculture Farm, the only salmon farm to be “Best Aquaculture Practices” (BAP) certified. The fish are farmed in their indigenous habitat—the cool flowing currents of the Columbia River in eastern Washington state. There, they are raised on all–natural diets and free of antibiotics, hormones or pesticides. Steelhead is characterized by its red flesh—which comes from only natural pigments—its rich flavor and extremely high content of Omega-3 oils.
