The Frøya salmons are farmed in the sea off the island of Frøya. This is the basis for the unique quality. In this area, the Gulf Stream for millennia has created strong currents with a large difference in floods and shorelines, ensuring the supply of nutritious and clean seawater twice a day, summer and winter. For generations, this natural phenomenon has created ideal conditions for growing salmon.
Once the salmon has grown to 5-6 kg, it is brought in to the state-of-the-art processing plant on the island.
The salmons are sorted by hand and only the best skins and boneless pieces of the best salmons are made into Frøya salmon.
Frøya has developed a unique packing and cooling process. It only takes two hours from the fish is alive until it is fully packed and ready for rapid cooling to below 0 degrees (salmon freezes at -1.72 °). It ensures that the salmon tastes the same at your home as the day we pick it up from the sea.
Frøya Salmon AS is owned by the Norwegian seafood company Insula. Insula’s companies have been producing top quality seafood for decades.
