Our fish swim in water that is naturally filtered through local lava fields, yielding a pure environment that is ideal for their health and growth.We use Iceland’s geothermal waters to sustainability regulate temperature. We are carbon neutral, offsetting any carbon footprint we make with tree planting.We’re committed to preserving Iceland’s status as one of the greenest countries in the world.
About our fish
From egg to harvest, we raise the best tasting fish in the salmon family. Our hatchery is locat- ed in the southern part of Iceland, nestled in the foothills of the highlands. Nurtured by our team of aquaculture specialists, our roe are hatched in pristine glacial waters. From the hatchery, our fish make the short trip to Grin- davik where they swim in pure Icelandic water that is naturally free of parasites and patho- gens. Our fish are raised without antibiotics, chemicals, or hormones and are fed a sustain- able and natural diet.We’re proud to maintain a 1:1.2 fish-in fish-out ratio. Once our fish reach optimal size, they’re harvested, quickly chilled and shipped out of the nearby interna- tional airport or port.
