Clare Island Organic Salmon
Clare Island Organic Salmon thrive in the wild pristine waters along Ireland’s west coast, where they were the first to achieve organic certification back in 1995. They have been rearing salmon for over 30 years in some of Ireland’s most remote locations while making a direct impact on the local communities by investing in the people, and the processes to ensure a sustainable business.
Clare Island Salmon offer complete traceability at each stage of the salmon’s life cycle. Feed quality and safety is monitored and managed in conjunction with the suppliers. During production stages, the quality of production and process water is carefully and regularly monitored. They have detailed systems for the monitoring and control of pathogens in addition to the monitoring and reporting of adventitious contaminants in fish.
What makes Clare Island Organic?
**The fish are nourished with a diet containing only organic and natural ingredients.
**Pens contain less than 10 kilo per cubic meter which is in line with the guidelines of organic standards.
**The pink color of the salmon is acquired naturally in the wild from the crustaceans that the salmon eat.
**High tidal exchange rates in every site to ensure that oceanic water is continually flushing though the pens.
**Fish meal/ fish oil are partly replaced by vegetable ingredients. The fish meal in organic feed is derived from the by-products of fish which is processed for human consumption.
**Certified Organic by EU Organic Aquaculture, Naturland Organic and BioSuisse Organic.

Known as the worlds most edible fish, Pompano is easy to eat whole and plates beautifully. The meat of pompano is pearly white and firm with fine flakes and has a sweet, mild flavor. It is often best to broil the whole fish with simple flavors, but is also great when baked, fried, grilled or sauteed.
