SweetSpring started 20 generations ago with an elite seed stock of Pacific coho and the goal of cultivating most sustainable salmon

A New Source of Sustainable Salmon

  (UNITED STATES, 10/1/2012)

SweetSpring is a new standard of salmon production based on breeding and cultivation techniques perfected over more than 30 years.

The company’s eco-farming methods break from traditional salmon production in two key ways. First, containment, which is related to escape, disease and contamination. SweetSpring raises salmon in a land-locked, closed system creating a bio-secure environment that is no threat to wild salmon stocks.

Eco-farmed Sweetspring’s freshwater Pacific Coho is listed as Super Green by the internationally recognized Seafood Watch Program

The other difference is habitat: SweetSpring fish live their entire lives in freshwater while net-pen salmon grow out in saltwater.

Because SweetSpring can fine-tune water quality, dangerous contaminants, such as mercury and PCBs, are eliminated and the possibility of disease greatly diminished.

Eco-farmed Sweetspring’s freshwater Pacific Coho and wild-caught Alaska are the only salmon listed as Super-Green by internationally recognized Seafood Watch Program. No other salmon is considered sustainable by Seafood Watch. Wild-caught Washington salmon is classified as a “Good Alternative”.

After years of development, the company is ready to begin expanding production to raise and deliver a sustainable, reliable supply of healthful Pacific salmon year-round.

About SweetSpring Salmon

SweetSpring is a leading company in the field of sustainable salmon farming. The company raises freshwater coho salmon in closed containment systems.

SweetSpring started 20 generations ago with an elite seed stock of Pacific coho and the goal of cultivating the best tasting and most sustainable salmon possible.

Thanks to focused, natural breeding for characteristics that allow these Coho to thrive in fresh water, the differences lie in their controlled freshwater environment and improved growth rate.

Aquaseed Corporation is the parent company of SweetSpring Salmon.
