For fresh Atlantic salmon to thrive, a specific set of environmental conditions must be met, including cool and steady sea temperatures, strong currents, pristine waters, and consistent circulation of fresh seawater. Salmon farmed in such conditions are healthy and well cared for, while maintaining a sustainable environment for future production. For consumers, this process from sea to table is important because fish, being lean, high in protein, and low in calories, is good for us.
However, finding fish that thrive in a natural environment, free of antibiotics and hormones isn’t easy. Like so much of our food these days, big corporations and factory farmers value profitability over sustainability and quality, which has led to fish farms with poor conditions.
With a shared philosophy and commitment to quality and sustainability, SteakChop partners with Salmon from the Faroe Islands. Located in the middle of the North Atlantic, the Faroe Islands offer the perfect conditions for the highest quality farmed salmon. Due to its remote and isolated location, seawater in this region remains pristine and clean, allowing salmon to breed naturally.
Like all protein we serve, fish and shellfish remain an important food group for a healthy diet. Though packed with essential nutrients, omega-3 fatty acids, and are low in saturated fat, the average American fails to consume the recommended two servings of seafood, or eight ounces of fish or shellfish, per week.
