GOLD RIVER, BC— Beginning on June 18, 2012, Skuna Bay Salmon will be available in western Pennsylvania and Ohio, as the craft raised salmon continues its steady growth into new markets. Skuna Bay Salmon is now available throughout the Southwest, West, Midwest and Great Lakes regions of the United States. North America’s only craft raised salmon can be found at more than 225 high-end restaurants in major urban markets including: Los Angeles, San Diego, Phoenix, Las Vegas, Palm Springs, Chicago, St. Louis, Denver, Detroit, Milwaukee and Indianapolis.

Skuna Bay Salmon will be exclusively offered by local wholesaler Euclid Fish Co. to western Pennsylvania and Ohio’s best restaurants in locations, including Pittsburgh, PA; Columbus, Cleveland and Cincinnati, OH and Louisville, KY.

“Skuna Bay Salmon has been expanding into new markets throughout the country and we continue to be thrilled by the overwhelmingly positive response from chefs,” said Stewart Hawthorn, Head Farmer at Skuna Bay. “Partnering with a trusted source like Euclid Fish Co. will allow Skuna Bay to offer our premium fish to the top chefs in the area and help us reach our goal to expand Skuna Bay availability to the entire continental United States.”

“We have been able to provide the region’s best seafood to quality restaurants since 1944 because of our extraordinary team of dedicated individuals,“ said John Young, President, Euclid Fish Co. “Skuna Bay’s same dedication to the process and to provide the best possible salmon makes us extremely fortunate and eager to work with them. ”
Euclid Fish Co. was selected as the exclusive distributing partner due to its reputation for quality, sustainable sourcing and outstanding ability to maintain the cold chain. Euclid Fish Co. joins Skuna Bay’s other exclusive distribution partners, Santa Monica Seafood (Southwest), Fortune Fish (Midwest and Great Lakes), and Seattle Fish Co. (West).

To date, Skuna Bay is showcased at an impressive lineup of Southwestern, Western and Midwestern U.S restaurants and is advocated by well- known chefs Ian Gresik of Drago Centro in Los Angeles, Stephanie Izard of Girl & the Goat in Chicago, and Lee Hillson of T. Cook’s at the Royal Palms Resort and Spa in Phoenix.

Skuna Bay Salmon is considered craft raised due to the personal care and attention to detail inherent in the special process. No other salmon in the world is raised in the same manner. Skilled farmers tend to the salmon 24/7 and make important judgment calls to ensure the best quality. The craft process also mandates that the salmon are raised in a unique environment. The pristine water of Nootka Sound is the best in the world for raising salmon, as strong tidal currents provide resistance for the fish to swim against and build up strong, thick, muscular bellies resulting in a firm yet buttery texture.

ABOUT SKUNA BAY CRAFT- RAISED SALMON: Offering a premium selection of craft raised salmon, Skuna Bay is made possible by its small group of experienced and passionate farmers. Dedicated to raising fish in their natural ocean environment, the farms of Skuna Bay are located in an isolated region off the coast of Vancouver Island. Here glacier fed waters, strong tidal currents and ideal salinity combine to provide perfect waters for raising good fish. Patented innovations in packaging exclusive to Skuna Bay in its market and an exclusive method of inspecting, selecting, hand cleaning and packing allow their salmon to be delivered in perfect condition to select distributors so that chefs experience the same fish as it was when pulled out of the water by its farmers. By reliably providing the highest standards for salmon in North America, Skuna Bay not only provides chefs with salmon “fresh from the ocean”, but it also provides a valuable service in reducing pressure on wild fish populations and is the first salmon farm in the world to have multiple sea farms certified as Best Aquaculture Practices by the Global Aquaculture Alliance and be endorsed by Seafood for the Future, a sustainable seafood education program managed by the Aquarium of the Pacific at Long Beach.
