Naturally occurring bacteria periodically turn up in the waters of Chilean Patagonia. These bacteria are harmful–and in some cases fatal–to salmon.

Any antibiotic use is completed well before harvest so we can be sure the fish we bring to market are antibiotic-free. Treatment is conducted in compliance with World Health Organization guidelines.14 Though Chilean fish can be treated with antibiotics when sick; the fish is antibiotic-free when it arrives in the U.S. market. This is required by U.S. law. For their part, both importing countries and Chile’s regulatory bodies maintain oversight and authorize all antibiotic use in the country’s salmon industry.
