Smolts

The eggs used for the farming of Arnarlax's salmon originate from an domestic breeding company with decades of experience in family selection to secure optimal growth of the salmon in the Icelandic conditions.

All the smolts are grown at our own domestic hatcheries, where they swim in free-flowing natural water that is drawn from adjacent wells, yielding pristine arctic spring water that has been filtered through the lava fields for centuries.

This geothermal smolt production requires no recirculation of water, replicating nature as closely as possible and resulting in a healthier and more resilient stock.
