Trout, Fjord

Fjord Trout is an exclusive fish and the name for fresh farm raised Trout from Norway. Lerøy is the largest producer of Fjord trout and is the only company that can supply Fjord trout 52 weeks of the year. Fjord trout is genetically a smaller fish than Salmon and has shorter fibers in the meat compared to Salmon. Fjord Trout is a salt water species of Trout, and a whole fish weighs over 4 pounds. Fjord Trout meat becomes a little more tender and velvetier than Salmon. Fjord trout also has leaner meat and a strong red color. The flesh is firm yet tender with beautiful marbling and a mellow taste. Its delicate and pure flavors can be enjoyed both raw and cooked. Fjord Trout is raised in the cold, clear waters of Norway, home to countless deep fjords. The fjords are fed by crystal water from the 10,000-year-old Folgefonna glacier and the salty sea which provide good currents and optimal water quality for these bright red fleshed fish.
