Thanks to sustained investment in our own processes and systems, and those of our tried and trusted suppliers, we can now have full traceability of each salmon sold.

Key details captured include:

Freshwater hatchery

  • Specialist breeder that eggs were sourced from
  • Type and generation of eggs
  • Date eggs input
  • What they were fed at each stage of the growing cycle
  • Whether they were given any veterinary care
  • Date fish left freshwater

Marine farm

  • Which marine farm the salmon was reared
  • Date that the salmon went into the sea pens
  • What they were fed throughout
  • Whether they were given any veterinary care
  • Date that the fish were harvested out

Harvest and packing

  • Which well-boat the salmon were transported on
  • Time of collection
  • Time of delivery to harvest station
  • Harvesting station salmon were processed via
  • Box that fish were packed in
  • Pallet that the box was loaded onto.


Every bulk bin, box or pallet is scanned so that we know which of our salmon went to which customer. That way, we can provide full traceability from egg to harvest.

These bulk bins or boxes are then loaded onto refrigerated trailers, the doors to which are secured with a safety seal for added security.

Throughout the journey, the temperature of the trailers is recorded and can be adjusted remotely if required to maintain product integrity.

Many of the trailers we use also have geo-fencing technology, enabling them to ping a text or email to the delivery destination informing them as to whether the fresh salmon is on schedule or delayed; an advance that has really come into its own during periods of adverse weather that can cause travel disruption.
