Our base of operations and where we source our Salmon from is in and around the island of Chiloé in the south of Chilean Patagonia. This island and the surrounding cold waters are renowned for the quality of its seafood and also has a rich history of myths and legends that have been told for generations. We’re excited to share both the tradition of quality seafood and the magic of the island with you!
The aquaculture (seafood farming) industry has developed a term to describe the unique sense of place and flavors that certain waters impart on the products—merroir. Although this term is usually reserved to shellfish and tidal currents we like to think that it applies to any body of water that is unique.
We are fortunate to have our base of operations in and around the island of Chiloé in the south of Chilean Patagonia. The waters around Chiloé are legendary for being cold, pure and pristine—these elements all impart an amazing flavor to our product – clean eating with a great fat content – just the way salmon should be.
Our team is proud to lead the industry with sustainable aquaculture practices and are constantly working to improve every aspect of our supply chain.
