Atlantic Salmon

Scientific name: Salmo salar

Atlantic salmon has been acknowledged worldwide as a good source of Omega-3 fatty acids - the key component in prevention of cardiovascular disease and stroke. 

 

Its benefits cover a wide range of ailments from degenerative eye disease to myocardial infarction and there are new discoveries everyday due to ongoing research into this wondrous compound.

 

WHO has already classified this species as sustainable seafood for the future as it is farmed responsibly and still maintains the essential nutrients that are found in their wild counterparts.

 

Everyone, starting from even 6 months of age to 100years can benefit from a daily diet of PUFA(polyunsaturated fatty acid) and Omega-3 rich foods  as outlined in the new WHO guidelines. see http://www.who.int/nutrition/topics/FFA_summary_rec_conclusion.pdf

 

In summary, eating one serving of salmon either raw or cooked (100g-200g) yields the daily requirement needed for prevention of chronic diseases.

Why farmed salmon?

 

Farmed salmon is one of the only sustainable ways to ensure that our ever-growing human population can feed itself in the near and distant future. Various studies and proven that the nutritional values are maintained and there is on-going effort by international certifying bodies to make sure that the farms are ecologically responsible in every way. 


Norway has been a pioneer in the development of salmon farming. Since the country's breakthrough with sea-based farming in the 1970s, it has maintained its position as the world's leading producer of Atlantic salmon. Today, salmon accounts for about 50% of the total export value of Norwegian fish products.
