Combined generations of farming knowledge and experience, produce the exceptional husbandry and welfare that is the hallmark of Wester Ross Salmon. Our time honoured, traditional hand-rearing practices result in the premium, artisan salmon upon which our reputation is founded.
We are RSPCA assured with a marine biologist on site and our salmon are hand-fed a high quality and sustainable fishmeal, developed specifically for Wester Ross. We use no antibiotics, growth promoters or GMOs. Our farms are medicine-free and with very low stocking densities (99% water, 1% fish) and a minimal handling at sea policy, we ensure a slowly grown and naturally healthy fish; time after time.
It takes patience, dedication and a great deal of commitment to rear salmon the all natural way. Our farmers are on the water day after day and time after time, because our salmon are ever under the watchful eye of the Wester Ross team.
Wester Ross operates its own processing facility in Dingwall, Scotland, where our salmon are cleaned and filleted by hand to customer specifications. Your salmon will be on their way to you, 24 hours from swimming at sea in the Western Highlands.
Fluctuations in sizing and availability,
coupled with fallow periods for optimum
management make salmon farming at Wester
Ross a seasonal business. In order
to offer a superior quality and well-reared
salmon when our Wester Ross Salmon
are out of season, we source from a selected
group of Scottish farms and offer premium
salmon under our Highland Blue label.
All Wester Ross Salmon and Highland Blue
salmon are tagged differently with their
respective labels, so you'll always
know which fish you have.
Hand selected and hand filleted to ensure that each whole fish and fillet meets our and your, exacting quality standards. Our Highland Blue will always have that characteristic and superior complex flavour which in Japanese is referred to as umami. Umami cannot be precisely translated but is understood to be the very essence of deliciousness.
The Scottish salmon farming industry is the most strictly regulated aquaculture industry in the world. Sourced exclusively from Scottish farms by the experts at Wester Ross, you can be sure that Highland Blue is responsibly farmed and responsibly sourced.
