Never treated with antibiotics
Sixty South® is the first and only salmon from South America to receive “Never Treated with Antibiotics” third party certification. We select the strongest, best adapted salmon during breeding, focus on vaccines to prevent diseases, and grow our salmon in icy cold temperatures that inhibit the growth of bacteria and parasites. Our holistic approach is recognized as one of the best within the industry.
no added hormones
Sixty South® salmon grow naturally without additives or unnatural hormones designed to accelerate their growth.
No antifouling chemicals
Allowing our pristine waters to flow freely and bring renewed oxygen into our farm is essential to maintaining a healthy salmon population. While it may be common for farms to use copper-based biocides to coat their nets, we completely eliminate all dangerous biocides. Instead, we take an intensive approach of cleaning and maintaining our nets by hand.
Ensuring a clean healthy habitat is critical to our farming philosophy. Through advanced feeding technology, we ensure each salmon receives proper nutrition without overfeeding. In addition, by not using antibiotics, hormones, or antifouling chemicals, Sixty South® eliminates harmful runoff often associated with the salmon farming industry. Our environmentally conscious practices give a safer, cleaner more natural environment for our salmon and the local wildlife to enjoy.
Sixty South® successfully achieved a <1:1 fish-in fish-out ratio on wild fish population through the use of vegetable-based proteins as well as animal- based proteins and oils sourced from Marine Stewardship Council (MSC) certified fisheries and delivering them using an efficient computer controlled feeding technology.
Sixty South® is proud to have achieved world-class sustainability certifications including Aquaculture Stewardship Council (ASC), Best Aquaculture Practices (BAP), and Global Good Agricultural Practices (Global GAP).
The rigorous ASC certification means our farms address the most pressing environmental and social impacts of aquaculture. We are able to supply ASC certified salmon year-round (in fresh and frozen forms).
