SUSTAINABILITY

STOCKING DENSITY
Loch Etive Steelhead have plenty of room to grow. The average stocking density is about 98% water to 2% fish.

FEED CONVERSION RATIO
Sea farm sites have an average FIFO ratio of about 1.2:1. In other words, it takes just over one pound of wild bait fish to grow one pound of Loch Etive Steelhead.

FALLOWING PROTOCOL
All farms sites are allowed to rest for several months after harvest. One advantage of the Loch Etive farm sites is the very high tidal exchange, which naturally disperses any nutrients from the farm over a wider area.
