SWISS LACHS produces salmon for the
Swiss market. Local production guarantees
a freshness never seen before. Our short
transport routes ensure the lowest
possible C02 emissions. Imported salmon
takes up to 5 days to reach the Swiss border.
The closed recirculation system is the most
technically advanced and elaborated type
of aquaculture. Our water is filtered and
reused seven times, making it particularly
resource-friendly; it reduces the need for
fresh water to 2%. Our energy comes from
the local hydropower plant and is green.
The nutrient-rich filter residues are then
recycled into biogas.
SWISS LACHS has a particularly high
quality because all the important
parameters for healthy breeding are
controlled. Thanks to permanent
filtration, our salmon swim in the cleanest
water. We do not use antibiotics,
hormones or other additives. Permanent
monitoring and a strict hygiene protocol
ensure good fish welfare and salmon quality.
Our salmon are not threatened by
parasites, predators or birds of prey and
can grow up stress-free and produce the
valuable proteins, omega 3 fatty acids,
vitamins A, D, B12 and iodine.
We source the salmon eggs from Iceland,
these are guaranteed virus and disease
free. Our salmon are raised in an indoor
facility and are parasite free. The fresh
salmon fillets can therefore be consumed
raw as sushi or sashimi without freezing
