SKYE Steelhead begins it's 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, also known as steelhead.

 

Skye Steelhead is loved by chefs for not only it's superior flavor & texture when cooked, but also it's versatility for different dishes, such as Sashimi/Crudo raw applications and Cold & Hot Smoked.

LOCATION

Location of these ocean farms are key for not only sustainability, but the overall health of the trout & environment. That’s why our 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. Sea sites allow the trout to naturally swim against the powerful currents. These powerful currents not only create stronger & healthier fish, but also help to keep a clean sea bed.
