Grocer Boasts of Local Aquaponic Salmon

Festival Foods, a Wisconsin grocer, recently boasted that it’s the first retailer to sell Superior Fresh‘s Atlantic Salmon:

“Superior Fresh is an industry leading aquaponics facility specializing in leafy greens. Their facility, which is situated on a 720 acre native restoration property in the Coulee Region of Wisconsin, is now producing Atlantic Salmon for our Meat & Seafood Department.”

Festival Foods also stocks Superior Fresh’s leafy greens.

“We’re thrilled to be the first retailer to sell this incredible product! Fish at Superior Fresh are raised indoors in a recirculating aquaculture system, a method of aquaculture that is the best for the environment and gives growers complete control to create the perfect growing conditions. All Superior Fresh production water is irrigated and does not get discharged to surface waters of the state.

“Six reasons you need to try this delicious fish:

1. They’re grown right here in Wisconsin!

2. They are grown without any antibiotics or pesticides ever. No contaminants or pollutants like you’ll find in the ocean.

3. They’re high in Omega-3 fatty acids.

4. Superior Fresh received the Highest Sustainability Ranking of “Best Choice” by the Monterey Bay Aquarium Seafood Watch.

5. The fish are fed an organic diet.

6. Amazing flavor!”
