Grieg Seafood farms Atlantic salmon, Salmo salar. Atlantic salmon are an ideal choice for salmon farming, as they naturally school together and are farmed more easily than other fish species. Its small head in proportion to its body means a greater percentage of meat per fish for the consumer. Atlantic salmon is also popular with Japanese restaurants on their sushi menus.
Being non-native to BC, Atlantic salmon are not susceptible to some of the naturally occurring viruses that affect Pacific salmon species. Numerous attempts by provincial agencies in the last century to introduce Atlantic salmon to BC waters were all unsuccessful.
