Why Faroe Islands Salmon is “Special”

Faroe Islands Salmon

Café Nuovo is well known for offering the finest raised and packed premium salmon in the world – the salmon of the Faroe Islands.

The Faroe Islands is a group of 18 islands located in the middle of the North Atlantic between Iceland and Norway. The Faroese people are descendants of Norwegian Vikings who inhabited the Faroe Islands early in the ninth century.

Remotely located in pristine waters in the middle of the North Atlantic Ocean, the Faroese fjords and sounds are perfect for premium aquaculture production, providing exceptional biological conditions and excellent circulation of fresh pristine seawater.

The harsh North Atlantic Ocean surges around and through the remote archipelago of the islands. These strong currents continuously renew the pristine seawater flowing through the fjords, cleaning and rejuvenating them to help ensure optimal conditions for raising salmon.

Most importantly, the feed used in the Faroe Islands operations comes from sources proven to be free of contaminant burdens, which is the main problem with most "farmed" salmon operations that use meal ground from fish, which themselves contain dangerous levels of PCBs, PAHs and other cancer-causing chemicals.

We take great pride in going to great lengths to prepare our culinary creations with the finest ingredients. Sometimes that calls for traveling great distances for which even Icelandic waters are not too far for our customers.
