ATLANTIC SALMON

Salmo Salar
Pescanova’s Atlantic Salmon is raised in the cold Southern Arctic waters around Chile where they develop slowly, giving the fish its exquisite flavor and texture. The farms from which our salmon is sourced have low and stable water temperatures year-round that create excellent biological conditions for lower density farming. Our raw, skin off, individually vacuum packed portions are available in 4 oz, 6 oz, 8 oz, and 10 oz portions. This deep red in color, tender fish is known for its superior health benefits, being low in saturated fats and high in protein. In comparison to other fish, salmon possesses one of the highest levels of omega-3 fatty acids, as well as being rich in many vitamins and minerals. The American Heart Association recommends eating at least two servings of salmon a week to reduce risks of strokes and heart diseases.
