Natural, Nutritious, Affordable Salmon

Farm-raised in B.C., Coast Fresh salmon is fresh, affordable, versatile

Coast Fresh salmon has a delicate flesh and must be processed, handled and transported carefully and rapidly to preserve the quality. As a result, our fish are brought to the processing plant within hours of being harvested, and are delivered to market 48 to 60 hours after being taken from the water. Because B.C. farm-raised salmon is harvested year-round, our salmon are available fresh 365 days a year.

Health Canada and the Heart & Stroke Foundation recommend eating at least 2 servings of fish every week (Canada’s Food Guide). Coast Fresh salmon is one of the healthiest foods on the planet.


Good for your heart. Good for your brain.

Nutritional Value

per 100 grams cooked

*Data for farm-raised Atlantic Salmon Omega-3 content was obtained from the following study:
Erin N. Friesen, Michael G. Ikonomou, Dave A. Higgs, Keng Pee Ang and Cory Dubetz. Use of Terrestrial Based Lipids in Aquaculture Feeds and the Effects on Flesh Organohalogen and Fatty Acid Concentrations in Farmed Atlantic Salmon. Environ. Sci. Technol., 2008, 42 (10), pp 3519–3523.

As outlined in the study, levels of Omega-3 in salmon will vary based on the diet the salmon are fed – and globally salmon farming companies are committed to reducing the amount of raw marine ingredients (fishmeal and fish oil) in feed. Farm-raised salmon eat a science-based, naturally-sourced diet, tailored to their nutritional requirements. Formulations continue to evolve based on the availability and sustainability of raw ingredients. Reducing raw marine ingredients is paramount to ensuring the sustainability of wild fisheries, as well as the sustainable growth of global aquaculture. B.C. salmon farmers are leading the way in using alternative proteins and oil ingredients. Current salmon feed formulations contain less than 18 per cent fishmeal and oil.

The good news is that farm-raised salmon – globally – continues to have a very high level of heart healthy Omega-3 fatty acids. Eating the recommended 2 x 75 g servings per week (Canada’s Food Guide) will provide you with the Omega-3’s you need.

With a passion for cooking, Rob graduated from the BCIT culinary program in 1989 and then spent the first three years of his career apprenticing to achieve Red Seal status. In the early part of his career he worked as the head chef at various pubs in Victoria, and then moved into higher-end Italian and Mediterranean cuisine.

After 10 years of being a chef, Rob decided it was time for a change so he moved to Campbell River and started working for Cermaq shortly thereafter, dealing with quality control and food safety. Born and raised in Campbell River he always had a love for salmon fishing, as it was something the family could do together. This next step in his career was a natural fit and he has been there for the last 8 years. In addition to his official role with Cermaq, Rob volunteers his time to help prepare salmon at events. Cooking is very much still a part of his life and his family regularly experiments with new recipes as a fun way to bond on the weekends.
