Faroe Islands salmon, off the coast of Scotland
Upstream salmon comes from the pristine waters surrounding the Faroe Islands, situated between Iceland and Scotland, where strong Artic currents replenish the waters, keeping them clean and creating the ideal environment for reproduction.
Numerous studies have shown that cold, constant temperatures are fundamental for the health and quality of salmon. Although aquaculture has been practiced in the Faroe Islands since 1967, the natural resources have remained intact. Thankfully, the waters haven't been wildly exploited for commercial purposes.
