Verlasso Salmon: from the Pristine waters of Patagonia to Tony’s
by Daniel Rosacci | January 20, 2022
Until recently, I have not been a fan of Chilean Salmon. The inexpensive Chilean Salmon that is often carried by the big box stores can be a bit mushy and lacking flavor. Not all salmon farms are equal and keeping with Tony’s high standards of selecting quality farms we have recently partnered with Verlasso Salmon to bring in their high-quality salmon. We still love our Scottish Salmon, BC Salmon and Wild Salmon in the spring, but having multiple quality sources ensures our customers will always have great products; despite supply chain issues from time to time.
Verlasso Salmon is a beautiful mild, large flaked, and buttery salmon. The farms, located on the long and pristine coastline of Patagonia, Chile, do a remarkable job in responsibly raising high-quality fish while still protecting our planets’ waters. There will always be debates on wild vs. farmed, I love and believe in both. Simply put, with a projected global population growth of 2.5 billion more people by 2050, we need both. Wild-only seafood would devastate the wild populations and drive prices out of control. But we will save that debate for another time.
When shopping for farms and sources, we always choose with quality and sustainability as a must. Verlasso hits both of those key categories. Verlasso is 4-Star rated by BAP (Best Aquaculture Practices).
I am pleased and proud to sell this quality fish from our southern continent.
