Salmon, Atlantic (Farm Raised)

Salmon, Atlantic (Farm Raised)

Overview

Salmo salar

With our close proximity to major U.S. markets and year-round production, Atlantic salmon is harvested to order and can be delivered from ocean to plate within 48 hours. It’s no wonder Atlantic salmon is one of our most important exports and New Brunswick’s single, largest agri-food commodity.

Atlantic Canada’s objective of sustainable aquaculture is practiced through improved innovation, technology, and responsible environmental management practices, which comply with strict Canadian and U.S. regulations.

Atlantic salmon is a key source of omega-3 fatty acids, which are considered pivotal in preventing heart disease and reducing the risk of cancer. Health experts recommend eating salmon and other kinds of fish two to three times a week to receive the recommended amount of omega-3 fatty acids in your diet.

It makes sense to choose Atlantic salmon.
