EU Organic Salmon

The main criteria for our organic salmon are:

  • The density in the pen is not allowed to be more than 10 kg/m3 (compared to maximum 25/m3 for conventional salmon.
  • The fish meal and fish oil in the feed is made by offcuts.
  • The pigmentation used is Panaferd which is a natural colorant. This gives the Salmon the same natural color as conventional salmon.
  • Salmar is using cleaner-fish to help keep the salmon free of sea lice.
  • The nets are not treated with anti-fouling which contains copper.
  • If fish must be treated by medications, the withdrawal time is 3 times longer than for conventional salmon.
