The fish reach peak physical condition owing to Shetland’s very strong tidal flows. These encourage the salmon to swim constantly resulting in much leaner and firmer flesh. It’s ideal for smoking.
To ensure continuous supply all year round, we will at times utilise salmon produced by farmers in Norway, the Faroe Islands and Iceland, who also operate to the same very high standards as farms based off the Shetland Islands.
We only ever buy from these producers on those occasions when our traditional lines of Scottish supply are curtailed. This remains the best course of action to guarantee that our award-winning range of smoked salmon is always available for you to purchase.
