The story

Behind the Captain's Cut

Mr Walrus is what you might call ‘an old sea dog’.


His years on the high seas have made him a seafood connoisseur and a master of trimming any catch. He knows all there is to know about fish.

 

Over the years, Mr Walrus has gained an impressive reputation. His expertise can be intimidating yet all the crews want to sail aboard ‘The Captain’s Cut’.

 

One evening, while crossing the choppy seas of Norway, this master of the filleting knife had a brainwave!

 

Mr Walrus looked at his crew, who were sighing at yet another meal of baked beans: meat was hard to come by aboard ship.

 

This is when his idea struck!

 

He dashed straight to the galley and took the first piece of fish he saw: some salmon. He took it to the chopping board and set to work, cutting the fish into small slices that were thick and juicy. “That will easily replace our ham rations!” thought Mr Walrus.

 

Pleased with his results, he returned to his crew and showed them his tempting slices of salmon, tuna, haddock and trout.
Their faces lit up, their mouths watered and their bellies were soon very happy indeed.

 

This is how our Mr Walrus developed the perfect cut. It’s all in the skill of cutting to bring out the best of each fish: a well-balanced slice, smaller yet thicker, one that melts on the tongue.

 

A tasty morsel, to be sure! So, what are you waiting for?

 

Try the Perfect Cut for yourself!

Mission aboard the Captain's Cut

To help all landlubbers, young or old, to enjoy smoked fish more easily and more often, using sustainable products that are delicious and as simple as sliced ham.

 

What could be better?

Our code of honor

Code of honor N°1

You will have smoked fish that are well fed and well brought-up
(it’s important to be polite!)

Our salmon is very well-brought-up

Our salmon come from Norway and spend 2 years peacefully growing up. Their lives begin in fresh water then they move to saltwater, as they would in the wild. They grow up in large enclosures, with a water density of 97.5% for 2.5% of salmon, and the water is naturally refreshed by the cool Norwegian sea currents.

well cared-for…

Throughout their lifespan, our farmed salmon are carefully monitored to ensure they stay in good health. As with our own little seadogs, the salmon are vaccinated at an early age, which means that there’s rarely any need for antibiotics.
Even so, they can sometimes fall prey to little parasites, so what do we do? We prefer to use natural methods wherever possible such as putting into pools other types of fish that like to eat the little parasites: a simple solution, but very effective!

… and well fed, too!

The salmon food used meets their natural needs and the requirements of sustainable fish-farming. The food is composed of:
– marine ingredients from regulated fisheries, as salmon are carnivores,
– oils and vegetable proteins, for sustainable farming,
– vitamines and minerals.

There are no GM foods here are no fishmeal using land animals!

Code of honor N°2

You will eat fish from certified sources, so you can trust what you’re eatings

Our smoked fish is ASC-certified

Founded by the WWF, the Aquaculture Stewardship Council runs a global certification and labelling programme for responsible aquaculture spanning the entire supply chain from the fish farmer to the final processing and food producers. We have chosen to rely on this label for its strict and complete approach.

The ASC label assures that our salmon has been raised by producers who minimize their impacts on the ecosystem, protect marine wildlife and safeguard vulnerable marine areas. They take care of the salmon by restricting the use of antibiotics, using a sustainable feed and monitoring water quality and fish health.
Not only they take care of the environment, but they also ensure good working conditions for their employees and care about local communities.

All our wild fins is MSC-certified

MSC certification enables fisheries to be recognised and rewarded for their resource management, whilst simultaneously offering consumers full traceability on the products they buy. When you choose fish with the MSC label, you know that it comes from producers who respect sustainability.
