UNRIVALLED
SCOTTISH SALMON

OUR SALMON


From Loch Duart’s unique Scottish broodstock


Raised from wild Scottish ancestors, our salmon grow up to three months longer than average in crystal clear waters. With a natural as possible diet and space to swim, each fish grows fitter and healthier every day.


The result is clear in its wild like salmon features: its eye-catching colour, strong torpedo shape and firmer texture. And of course, a taste that’s sought-after by the best chefs in the world.

INNOVATION IN WELFARE

CLEANER FISH

At Loch Duart, we use cleaner fish as a primary biological method of control against sea lice. We introduce wrasse to our salmon’s environment, where they are looked after by our trained staff to make sure they are well nourished with a supplementary feed and provided a habitat mimicking their natural environment. The wrasse plays the most important role in keeping our salmon parasite free. It is a mutually beneficial partnership as the wrasse graze on the sea lice and the salmon get to enjoy a clean environment.

Fish welfare is at the heart of what we do for salmon and cleaner fish alike. The wrasse are sourced from a regulated wild fishery, where Loch Duart have been pivotal drivers and supporters of government regulation. Looking to the future we are supporting the production of farmed ballan wrasse with research and development with the aim to reduce our use of wild ballan wrasse and replace with farmed.

HEALTHY FEED,
HEALTHY SALMON,
HEALTHY PEOPLE.

We’ve partnered with Biomar to design a feed that is totally unique to Loch Duart. High in marine content, we believe this feed replicates the salmon’s natural diet as close as possible. The result is healthy fish with industry leading omega-3 levels. When compared to shop bought Scottish farmed salmon Loch Duart can have up to double the omega-3 levels.

To help communicate the health benefits of eating salmon as part of a balanced diet and active lifestyle, we’ve partnered with Heart and Cholesterol charity HEART UK. After a stringent approval process HEART UK have awarded our salmon HEART UK approved. This exciting partnership allows us to re assure our consumer’s that Loch Duart Salmon is high in Omega-3 and helps contribute to a healthy lifestyle.
