The true Scottish broodstock
The Loch Duart broodstock are notable for their wild salmon features, a natural leanness and torpedo-like shape.
Originally stock was collected from the rivers Spey, Thurso, North Esk, Laxford and others and crossed over a period of many years.
The Loch Duart broodstock are notable for their similarity in shape to a wild salmon. We look for a healthy and strong torpedo-like body shape, good sized head, clear eye and silver sheen because we know that these characteristics will keep our stock looking and tasting their best.
To date, it has not been possible to differentiate Loch Duart salmon from wild salmon genetically.
