Does BluGlacier use any antibiotics?

While the use of antibiotics is controversial in the salmon industry, it’s important to remember we are working with a live animal. Truth is, animals get sick just like you and me!

It is rare for this to happen, but in full transparency, we will never say “we never use antibiotics” because the truth is — the well-being of our salmon is our #1 priority.

If one of our salmon were to get sick, we separate and treat that specific fish – not the entire school. We have veterinarians looking after our beautiful fish and they ensure they are in tip-top shape!
