LOW IMPACT FARMING
FOR THE FUTURE
At Loch Duart our aim is to raise the best quality salmon at the lowest possible impact to the environment.
We recognise that sustainability is a journey that takes time and commitment. Here are some of the proactive steps which we are taking.
OUR CARBON FOOTPRINT
We’ve partnered with Biomar to design salmon feed that is unique to Loch Duart. High in marine content, we believe this feed replicates the salmon’s diet as close as possible and optimises fish health. All of these ingredients come from sustainable and traceable sources and easily accessed through the BioMar discovery App.
Fishmeal is a commercial product mostly made from fish products not generally used for human consumption. Fish oil is derived from trimmings and rejected products of typically herring, mackerel, anchovies and sardines. These contain the essential and heart healthy omega-3 fatty acids eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA).
The marine ingredients Biomar use within our feed are certified responsibly sourced by the Marin Trust.
