It operates the world’s southernmost farms over 10 hours away from any city, following strict environmental practices to raise salmon on Nature’s Terms – free of antibiotics, added hormones, pesticides, antifouling chemicals, and in pure ample waters.
Sixty South farmers work in some of the toughest conditions on earth. Living isolated from the outside world for up to 12 days at a time, floating alone with their salmon, enduring snow and stormy conditions, and taking care of the farm and fish naturally – scuba diving in icy waters to help clean the nets instead of using chemicals.
Sixty South salmon enjoys a well marbled appearance, a buttery flavor, and a clean taste. This is the signature profile of fish raised in very cold waters, where they accumulate fat to resist the cold.
This salmon also happens to be one of the most sustainable, as it is considered to be one of a handful of producers that are 100% ASC certified, Global GAP certified, rated as a “Good Alternative” by the Monterey Bay Aquarium Seafood Watch program, and have achieved a fish-in fish-out ratio of 1:1.
Sixty South has implemented environmental practices that rival those in the Faroe Islands dismantling and removing all their equipment after each harvest and allowing nature to take over their pristine sites for an average of 3 to 6 months.
