Founded in 1979 by a group of Irish shareholders, The Irish Salmon Co. is the country's largest producer of farmed Atlantic salmon.
The first harvest of Atlantic salmon took place in 1984 from young salmon put to sea in 1982. By 1986, the company became self-sufficient with its own broodstock. Since then, things have grown rapidly; the company currently exports over 80% of its product to countries the world over, including USA, France, Germany and Switzerland.
The Irish Organic Salmon Co. produces organic and premium salmon under the names The Irish Organic Salmon Company and Donegal Silver respectively.
As well as production in Fanad, Co. Donegal, the company also produces organic Atlantic salmon at Inver Bay, Co. Donegal; Clare Island in Clew Bay, Co. Mayo; Kilkerian Bay in Co. Galway; Bantry Bay in Cork; and Kenmare Bay, Co. Kerry. Its site in Clare Island was one of the world's first salmon farms to be certified organic.
The Irish Organic Salmon Co. employs over 280 people here in Ireland and utilises over 600 Irish suppliers across all its locations.
