We source our farmed salmon through Shetland's Finest who provide responsibly farmed salmon of the highest quality. Anyone that has had the fortune to visit the Shetlands will know that the Islands provide perfect conditions for developing lean and fit fish.
Since Scottish Aquaculture began in the 1980's, Shetland has been at the forefront of salmon farming in terms of quality and best practice farming.
The creation of the Shetland Seafood Quality Control (SSQC) as an independent auditor of seafood companies really sets the standards. SSQC monitors the salmon right through its life journey to the final processed product. Each sector is governed by strict codes of practice concerning all stages of their operations.
Animal welfare is very important to Shetlands Finest and they demand animal friendly procedures throughout the fish husbandry. By providing the fish with plenty of space to move around, causing as little stress as possible allows for much healthier salmon which is of a superior quality.
Wild salmon stocks have been over-fished and this is why we do not source it at all.
