Norwegian salmon – for everyday use and for special occasions

The Norwegian salmon is the ancient Norwegian salmon species Salmon Salar, which belongs to the North Atlantic salmon stock. Since the Ice Age, salmon have migrated to the Atlantic Ocean from their spawning grounds in Norwegian rivers. Because they carry water from glaciers and melted snow, these rivers are cold all year.

Robust genes

Through thousands of years in a demanding climate, the salmon has developed robust genes that are adapted to the ice-cold Norwegian water. Farmed salmon is based on genes from our finest salmon rivers. Good fish welfare forms the basis for growth and quality. Our fish farmers make sure that their fish have plenty of room in the cages and that the fish get the best feed available.
