Seattle Fish Company is proud to be the exclusive distributing partner of Skuna Bay Salmon. Skuna Bay craft-raised salmon is reared in the pristine waters off the coast of Vancouver Island, B.C. by a dedicated, passionate team of craftsmen farmers. North America’s only Craft Raised salmon has been successfully launched in the Southwest, Midwest and East Coast regions of the United States, and can now be found at more than 350 high-end restaurants across 14 states and major urban markets, including: Los Angeles, San Diego, Phoenix, Las Vegas, Palm Springs, Chicago, St. Louis, Detroit, Milwaukee, Indianapolis, New York, Philadelphia, Washington DC and now Denver.
Offering a premium selection of Craft Raised salmon, Skuna Bay is made possible by its small group of experienced and passionate farmers. Dedicated to raising fish in their natural ocean environment, the farms of Skuna Bay are located in an isolated region off the coast of Vancouver Island. Here glacier fed waters, strong tidal currents and ideal salinity combine to provide perfect waters for raising good fish.
Patented innovations in packaging exclusive to Skuna Bay in its market and an exclusive method of inspecting, selecting, hand cleaning and packing allow their salmon to be delivered in perfect condition to select distributors so that chefs experience the same fish as it was when pulled out of the water by its farmers. Only 6% of the fish meet the exacting Skuna Bay standard. By reliably providing the highest standards for salmon in North America, Skuna Bay not only provides chefs with salmon “fresh from the ocean,” but it also provides a valuable service in reducing pressure on wild fish populations. It is the first salmon farm in the world to have all their sea farms earn the prestigious Best Aquaculture Practice certification by the Global Aquaculture Alliance and it's endorsed by Seafood for the Future, a sustainable seafood education program managed by the Aquarium of the Pacific at Long Beach. Fish is always trucked from Canada to Colorado to reduce carbon footprint and to allow for wet ice and maintaining the fish at the lowest and optimal temperature possible. Skuna Bay farms are also making significant progress on the amount of wild fish required for feed with an industry leading feed conversion ratio of 1.2:1 and are driving for an impressive 1:1 in the near future.
