Fresh Salmon from Huon Aquaculture
All Natural Meat Co is now selling smoked and fresh salmon at Murwillumbah, Nimbin and Burleigh Farmers’ markets. The salmon from Huon Aquaculture has recently been named as Australia’s first RSPCA approved farmed salmon. This means the company has had to satisfy a number of rigorous animal welfare standards to produce a quality and sustainable product.
RSPCA Australia CEO Heather Neil says, “With a growing number of Australians including fish in their diets, it’s important that caring consumers have the opportunity to choose a product that has been raised to a high standard of animal welfare – Huon have recognised this and are leading the way in offering Australians a humanely farmed salmon product.”
All Natural Meat Co sell it because of the sustainable practices Huon Aquaculture has developed to deliver the salmon to the market. We also sell it because it tastes good![/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]
RSPCA Approved Farming Scheme
The RSPCA Approved Farming Scheme under which the Huon Aquaculture salmon is farmed ensures the fish’s physical and behavioural needs are met. This means that the handling of fish is carried out in a manner that is low stress; and that all husbandry and management practices limit any negative impacts on the fish. The standards aim to ensure that fish be held in water of good quality and that farming practices aim to provide all fish with sufficient oxygen and feed; freedom from injury, stress, deformation or disease; the ability to exhibit normal swimming and schooling behaviour and to escape aggressive encounters.
