Wild Isles Scottish Sea trout begins its life cycle on land in “zero waste”closed containment recirculating tanks. Only the most pristine Scottish spring water is used to ensure the upmost quality & health of the fish. Once the trout reach maturity, they are then introduced into salt water, thus making them a true sea trout.
Location of these ocean farms are key for not only sustainability, but the overall health of the trout & environment. That’s why the sea trout farms are located in the open sea off the northwest Isles of Scotland, where the powerful currents of the North Atlantic are constantly surging nutrient rich water through the farms. Open sea sites allow the trout to naturally swim against the powerful currents, like wild sea trout, developing the strongest & healthiest. These powerful currents not only create stronger & healthier fish, but also help keep a clean sea bed, and are key to our sustainable aquaculture methods.
