Visiting the True North Salmon Company Fish Farm

I have always loved eating salmon - dubbed the "king of fish" for its full, rich flavor and numerous health benefits. Wild caught and certain farmed raised salmon are excellent sources of protein and vitamins, but it is vitally important to know exactly where that salmon is sourced, and how the fish are raised.

Located in the small fishing village of Blacks Harbour, New Brunswick, is a family owned business that has become one of the leading innovators of  sustainable Atlantic salmon farming. True North Salmon Company is one of North America's largest and most trusted producers of fresh North Atlantic Salmon, and Trout, as well as a variety of smoked and specialty seafood.

During my recent visit to Maine, I had the opportunity to take some friends on a short trip to True North's fish farm. Here are some photos, and please take some time to visit their web site. You can also learn more from the Monterey Bay Aquarium Seafood Watch and the National Aquaculture Association.
