With the rapid growth and increasing demand for farmed salmon, we know that responsible practices must be put in place to protect the places and species we care about.
Salmon consumption worldwide is three times higher than it was in 1980. What was once a luxury food is among the most popular fish species in the US, Europe, and Japan.
Salmon aquaculture requires fewer resources than many other protein sources. For example, while approximately 6-10 pounds of feed are needed to produce one pound of beef, only 1.15 to 1.7 pounds of feed are needed to produce one pound of salmon.
