Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)<< Back to Main FAQ Page
Our fish are not certified organic, and we don't ever make that claim. All "organic" really means is that the animal or plant raised under organic standards has been in a (reasonably) controlled environment its entire life and free of pesticides, growth hormones, GMOs, etc.
While there are some who think wild salmon should qualify as organic, by definition they could never meet the controlled environment standard—just as nothing raised on a farm by humans can be called truly natural or wild.
For an excellent read on what organic really means, we highly recommend New York Times writer Michael Pollan's article "Behind the Organic Industrial Complex," which is available here (copy and paste to your browser window): http://www.mindfully.org/Food/Organic-Industrial-Complex.htm
