Family-owned Grieg Seafood rears its "craft-raised" Skuna Bay Salmon at these farms.

"Skuna Bay's commitment to certify its salmon farms to the prestigious BAP standards demonstrates dedication to responsible aquaculture and assures the confidence of the marketplace," said GAA President George Chamberlain. "Its leadership inspires aquaculturists around the world to strive for this global standard of excellence."

Stewart Hawthorn, managing director of Skuna Bay, said, "Our craftsmen farmers share the same values as the Global Aquaculture Alliance -- to provide healthful salmon using environmentally and socially responsible practices to help meet the growing global demand for sustainable and nutritious food sources."

Skuna Bay raises its salmon in Nootka Sound, an isolated region with ideal salinity and tidal conditions off the coast of Vancouver Island. Patented innovations in packaging and a tamper-proof traceable seal ensure the salmon's freshness is preserved as it is delivered from the ocean to chefs' kitchens.
