Salmon and Salmon Fillet

Salmon and Salmon Fillet





As our company name suggests, Scottish Import has always placed its main focus of attention on salmon sourced in Scotland. Over the past two decades we have built up a diverse range of salmon products and consider ourselves in the meantime as specialists in this field.

Scottish salmon has an excellent reputation and is continuously recognised for its quality.

The Atlantic Ocean around Scotland’s coast has the reputation of having the cleanest water in Europe. With the water’s high oxygen level and strong currents, it is ideally suited to farm the salmon species “Salmo Salar”.

Besides the quantities of Scottish salmon our customers require dispatched daily from Scotland, we also import salmon from Norway, Ireland and the Faroes several times a week. This enables us to serve our customers reliably and to offer absolute freshness and dependable availability.

All quality grades of Scottish salmon are available at Scottish Import: Superior, Label Rouge, Global G.A.P., Bio/Naturland und ASC certified. By extending our product spectrum with regard to salmon and cooperating with carefully selected filleting partners, we are able to fulfill our customers’ individual requirements. We can produce daily on demand, whether it is the standard salmon fillets Trims A to E+, salmon portions or even loins. Filleting of the salmon takes place either directly in the country of origin or immediately upon arrival in Germany, which enables fast and flexible production on a daily basis.

A specialty we have on offer are our pre-rigor salmon fillets from Scotland and Norway: unsurpassed freshness, with filleting taking place shortly after harvesting, before rigor mortis sets in. This guarantees an excellent colouring and firm consistency, resulting in a truly premium quality!

Scottish Salmon

Scottish Salmon

Scottish Salmon enjoys an excellent reputation around the world! The Atlantic Ocean around Scotland’s coast has the reputation of having the cleanest water in Europe. With the water’s high oxygen level and strong currents, it is ideally suited to farm the salmon species “Salmo Salar”.

Farmed Salmon spend their first year growing in fresh water, taken from lakes, rivers and streams. These so-called smolts are then transferred to salt water, where they continue to grow in cages in the wild waters around the northern and western coasts of Scotland. Low fat feed is implemented to ensure the best possible quality of Scottish salmon.

Environmental respect and awareness are of the utmost importance to us when it comes to our selection of the Scottish Salmon producers we work with. Regular cage shut down phases, lasting two to three months, are imperative to reduce the environmental impact.

Each step of the farming process is subject to rigorous quality checks and we are able guarantee the traceability of all our salmon, even prior to the harvest date.


Loch Trout

Loch Trout

Why Loch Trout?

Loch Trout describes zoologically the rainbow trout (Oncorhynchus mykiss). It is bred on the Scottish coastal areas, called Lochs, where cold, clear spring water from the Scottish Highlands mixes with the salty water of the Atlantic and grow to considerable size under optimal conditions.

Loch Trout is kept in flowing water under natural conditions according to “Freedom Food” standards. The result is a premium quality product which is also appreciated by sushi lovers. In contrast to salmon, which is mainly produced by large corporations in very large quantities, the rearing and keeping of Loch Trout is in the hands of smaller farms, this ensures a consistently high quality.
Suitable for the preparation are all methods that can also be used for salmon, but the meat is a little firmer and the so-called “Brown Meat” is more discreet.

Label Rouge

Label Rouge


In 1992 Scottish salmon was the first non-French and first fish type ever to gain the Label Rouge seal of quality, which guarantees excellence in quality and taste!

Strict standards and specifications must be fulfilled in order to receive this seal of quality; factors such as traceability from the farm to the shop counter, environmental and animal issues and lesser stock density in cages.

The result is excellent and perfect for customers looking for a gourmet product.
