What is the difference between farm-raised and wild caught salmon?

Movable wild fisheries provide greater control over environmental pollutants, and allow ecosystems to return to a natural state more rapidly. While overfishing has become a significant issue with wild caught salmon, our ocean farm-raised Atlantic salmon stock is stable, making Honey Smoked Salmon more affordable, more delicious, and better for the earth all year round.

Are there color-added ingredients in the feed?

Honey Smoked Fish Company purchases salmon from sustainable suppliers that use FDA approved natural carotenoid colorant, Astaxanthin, in their feed. This carotenoid is identical to the types absorbed by salmon in the wild from eating krill and other planktonic organisms, and also provides antioxidant health benefits to consumers.
