Organic Shetland Salmon
THIS FISH Organic Shetland Salmon is sustainably farmed, in the clean remote seas of Shetland Island, Scotland, to become naturally strong & healthy.

The sustainability and responsible production of supreme quality salmon is at the core of THIS FISH. Particular attention is paid to the environment surrounding the Shetland Island sea sites and strict quality control procedures that are designed to protect both the product and the environment are adhered to. Consequently, the most stringent fish welfare regimes and the most rigorous environmental control schemes have been adopted.

Our rearing, processing and packing standards are certified by the Organic Food Federation, Nutarland and Freedom Foods:
- Stocking density in the net pens is 8 kilograms per meter³ this means that only 1% of the cage is occupied by fish. We use larger holding pens than other farms to ensure our salmon are raised at lower stock densities, rather than the industry standards, usually practised at more than 25-30 kg m³.
- No toxic anti-fouling used on the net pens (used to keep net pens clean) are not permitted on organic fish farms.
- Withdrawal periods after medicinal treatments are double the time periods set for conventional salmon fish required should treatments be essential to maintain high welfare standards.
- No antibiotics are used during medicinal treatments or the life of the fish.
