Fish from Pure Salmon’s Polish land-based farm has been endorsed by the Ocean Wise Seafood program as an ocean-friendly farmed fish option.
The recirculating aquaculture system (RAS) near Warsaw, formerly known as Global Fish, is co-owned by private equity 8F Asset Management, owner of the Pure Salmon brand.
The site operates commercially but functions primarily as an R&D and training center for Pure Salmon.
A few weeks ago, the site also attained certification from the Aquaculture Stewardship Council (ASC).
“We are proud to partner with companies like Pure Salmon Poland,” said Sophika Kostyniuk, manager of Ocean Wise. “Their sustainable farming practices ensure more Ocean Wise recommended Atlantic salmon options will be accessible long into the future.”
Salmon is one of the best
sources of healthy protein.
It is rich in omega-3 fatty acids, which have been shown to reduce inflammation, provide good cholesterol, lower blood pressure and decrease risk factors for heart disease. It is a great source of vitamin B, potassium and antioxidants.
The delicate flavour and fine texture make salmon a great choice for a variety of delicious recipes. Pure Salmon is available in a range of convenient products, including fresh fillets, ready-to-cook portions with a selection of flavours and ready-to-eat smoked salmon delicacies.
Pure Salmon is not only healthy and delicious, it’s the sustainable seafood choice for positive environmental and social impact.
As unsustainable fish farming practices have been affecting marine ecosystems and diminishing wild fish stock, the growing world population is now in need of sustainable alternatives. Pure Salmon helps protect marine ecosystems while ensuring a minimum environmental footprint across the value chain.
Pure Salmon’s local production facilities near metropolitan areas reduce transportation distances and carbon emissions and create economic opportunities for the local economy. Our land-based salmon is produced only hours away from major consumer markets and is days fresher than salmon flown in from Chile or Norway.
Pure Salmon are free of any chemicals, antibiotics, hormones, mercury and microplastic.
We grow our fish in a controlled, bio-secure environment where the water is pure and 100% free of parasites or pathogens which are common to other methods of salmon farming.
In our land-based farms, the fish enjoy an optimum diet tailored to their life-cycle and grow in the healthiest living conditions that closely replicate the positive qualities of their natural environment. Pure Salmon never have antibiotics or other impurities, unlike conventionally farmed salmon.
