DUTCH PROCESSOR PARTNERS WITH SCOTTISH TROUT FARMER
Dutch processor partners with Scottish trout farmer. A statement on the Visscher website says:
“We are the exclusive processor and distributor of Kames steelhead in northern Europe. Our speed focused supply chain combined with our modern processing facilities assure the optimal freshness a product like this deserves.
“Kames’ Steelhead Trout is a fantastic fish that looks like salmon but has the firm texture you would expect form tuna. The firm flesh in combination with its slightly sweet, delicate flavour make steelhead a delicious fish that complements our salmon range perfectly.”
Kames have pioneered growing Scottish Steelhead Trout in the remote sea lochs of the Inner Hebrides since 1972. Its an area renowned for its Atlantic flow and mineral-rich currents; an outstanding oceanic habitat for our exceptional fish.
Steelhead trout (Oncorhynchus mykiss irideus) is the rainbow that migrates to the sea. Like all rainbow trout, it’s native to the Pacific coastline of North America, but is now found all over the world. It thrives in our Scottish sea lochs, where we’ve farmed it for nearly 50 years.
In the sea, the Steelhead grows far bigger, leaner and more athletic than a river trout, akin to a salmon, but with a sweet, delicate flavour and outstanding firm texture.
Fresh all-natural fish from the North Atlantic Ocean. Taking pride in making pure fish products, free of chemicals and antibiotics. With Visscher’s natural salmon aquaculture programme VÅRLAKS in Norway and their farming company Organic Sea Harvest in Scotland they control the entire supply chain from egg to plate.
