FAO27 exports salmon on behalf of Wester Ross Salmon to our key markets

Wester Ross is responsible for their salmon’s entire life-cycle, all the way from smolt to harvesting:

Smolt – the smolt are currently kept at the Corry site, South of Ullapool, where they are are hand fed and looked after by our farmers. They cohabitate with cleaner fish , such as local wrasse, to keep them naturally healthy.

Growth in Sea Water – once they have reached a good size, the salmon are moved at sea to the Ardmair site where they will continue to grow, under the supervision of our farmers, until maturity.

All Wester Ross salmon are fed a responsibly sourced diet and a high quality sustainable fishmeal, developed specifically for Wester Ross. Ensuring we are adequately providing for the welfare of our fish as it is an obligation we take very seriously. That’s why, we must also ensure we are properly satisfying the demanding appetite of our fish during peak feeding periods by using “feed blowers” operated by the farmers.

Careful Harvest – careful humane harvesting methods in accordance with RSPCA Freedom Foods guidelines avoid stress to the fish and ensure the best quality salmon.

Salmon is available year round and is supplied in as consistent sizing as possible; Wester Ross strives to produce 3 to 6kg salmon all year round.
