Major Farming Areas

Our Farmed Atlantic Salmon is grown in ocean sites mostly within the Western Fjords of Iceland. The Wild Atlantic Salmon is caught using fishing rods in two rivers on the Southern part of Iceland. Salties has a trade-in system for foreign sport fishermen fishing in Icelandic rivers during the 3-month fishing season. In exchange for their Salmon, they get smoked fillets to take with them back home, and Salties can therefore bring this fantastic product to all our customers in the world to enjoy.

Did you know...

Unlike Pacific Salmon who die when they finish spawning, Atlantic Salmon return to the ocean but no-one knows where they go. When they then return around 2 years later, they somehow know exactly where to go and how to get there.

Did you know...

Common size of Farmed Atlantic Salmon is around 17 lbs and Wild Atlantic Salmon is around 15 — 30 lbs, both can reach a length of 75 cm. The longest wild Atlantic Salmon ever caught was 160 cm long, and the heaviest was 109 lbs.

Did you know...

Atlantic Salmon eat many things, including flies, small fish, and Salmon eggs. Once they are grown they begin to eat squid, sand eel, herring, and Arctic Shrimp. Arctic Shrimp has colouring in their shells that cause the Salmon flesh to turn red.

Farming Method

The cold and clear seawater around the coast of Iceland makes Salties Farmed Atlantic Salmon exceptional in terms of health and sustainability. In the Wild, Atlantic Salmon eat Arctic Shrimp which colour their flesh red. The feed that is given to our Salmon includes Arctic Shrimp as well as other marine species that are part of their natural diet. Through this feed, and not using any antibiotics whatsoever, allow our Salmon to stay healthy and remain as natural as possible. The ocean sites are placed in different fjords, at great distances from each other to reduce biological hazards and diseases from affecting the populations.
