Combining the work of conservation and public health officials, the Monterey Bay Aquarium has recognized farm-raised rainbow trout as being “super green,” meaning that it is good for human health and does not harm the environment.
The species named on this list represent the “Best of the Best” in sustainable seafood. Clear Springs trout are raised in spring water from the pristine Snake River Plain aquifer in Southern Idaho. Every minute, more than one million gallons of oxygen-rich spring water gush out of the walls of the canyon that flows through Clear Springs’ farms. It takes less than an hour for the water to flow through the concrete raceways and into the Snake River, making us non-consumptive user of these waters. As a result, the trout are free of pesticides and other potentially harmful substances.
