Fish Farming Facts

Northern Harvest Sea Farms – A recognized leader

1 Farmed salmon is raised naturally without hormones or genetic modifications.
2 Salmon farming sites are carefully chosen in order to keep the environmental impact as minimal as possible.
3 No dyes are added to make the meat pink, only carotenoids like the natural pigments found in lobster and shrimp shells that are actually protective antioxidants. Salmon need these to maintain a healthy immune system, and give them their characteristic orange/pink color.
4 As the global demand continues to rise, aquaculture, including salmon farming, will play a vital role in feeding our growing population. Even today, the only way to obtain fresh Atlantic salmon is through salmon farming operations.
5 Salmon farming provides year-round work in communities where typically only seasonal employment was available.
