Beyond sustainable: These gourmet umami bites are raised from seed by our partners in Peru (not extracted via destructive bottom trolls), grown to maturity in hanging lantern baskets filtering in the mid water column thus thy are never bottom feeding sandy. The Peruvian Scallop farm is located on an idyllic site that has been used for aquaculture indigenously for over 1,000 years. As scallops grow particulate inorganic carbon in the ocean is sequestered through calcification and the development of carbonate minerals for their shell are formed. Thus not only do our scallops farms require no feed inputs (as they are filter feed plankton & algae), they also directly help to mitigate ocean acidification, and they lantern baskets create a healthy ecosystem for a diversity of species in the ecosystem.
Our Peruvian scallops are farmed and harvested in the clean waters of the southern ocean Humboldt Current. Certified free of contamination and pollution using state-of-the-art technology, our scallops are harvested, cleaned, and Individually quick frozen in less than 3 hours.
