Plum Market is excited to have Skuna Bay Salmon out of Vancouver Island’s Pacific waters within its amazing fresh seafood repertoire. The waters are fed by glaciers and have the perfect balance of salinity, strong tidal currents, and cold temperatures.

Skuna Salmon see’s one of the highest water-to-salmon ratios in the industry with 98.5% available open water which lends a lot a room for the salmon to be in constant motion, allowing the fish to develop strong, healthy tissue.

Skuna hand selects each fish by looking for silver scales, red gills, a thick muscular belly, no blemishes and always firm and thick texture.  Because of these high quality standards, only 6% of the salmon are selected each harvest.  Once harvested, the salmon is cold packed in recyclable packaging and sealed at the farm.  The next person to open that package–only 2 days later– is a Plum Market Team Member.

We encourage you to learn more about Skuna Bay and their award-winning Aquaculture practices on the Skuna Website.
