Marketed under the brand name 'Glenarm Organic Salmon' our salmon are renowned for their outstanding quality derived from the clean, clear and fast flowing coastal waters of the Irish Sea and are increasingly the first choice for many top UK & International chefs.
Our seawater farms are located in the very exposed and energetic coastal waters of the North Channel in the Irish Sea where currents and tidal flows ensure optimal exercise and firm muscle formation in the salmon. The salmon also have plenty of space to grow and thrive with maximum stocking densities of 10kg per cubic meter providing the salmon population with a living environment that reduces stress and promotes healthy growth and freedom to thrive.
Such is the quality of the environment in which our farms are located and the isolation from any other producer, no antibiotics or medicines to treat disease or parasites endemic to wild salmon are used. This is just one of the things that make our salmon unique.
Husbandry practices focus on the health and welfare of our stock and ensuring a clean environment is maintained. Every activity undertaken on the farm also ensures the fish’s ability to behave as naturally as possible is not compromised.
Whilst we farm our salmon to the very highest standards we are continually assessing the health and quality of our stock. Our aim is to produce salmon that match if not exceed the quality of wild Atlantic salmon but with more consistency in texture, shape, size & flavour.
Glenarm Organic Salmon Ltd is able to harvest, process and dispatch all within 24 hours. This means we are able to ship products across the world in just three to four days, ensuring a fresher product and longer shelf-life for the retailer and consumer.
