Healthy, local seafood you can trust
At Hudson Valley Fisheries, we grow Steelhead trout year-round using advanced technology called Recirculating Aquaculture System (RAS) to minimize our impact on the environment. Learn more below!
Our Recirculating Aquaculture System (RAS) is a land-based, closed and controlled environment that allows us to grow Steelhead trout away from our oceans and close to the place of demand.
This means we have no impact on wild fish populations or the marine ecosystem, and are never exposed to external elements such as diseases or pollutants. As a result, we never have to use antibiotics, hormones or artificial dyes on our fish, offering customers a clean, healthy, and delicious source of protein raised responsibly in the U.S.
In addition, we work hard to minimize our impact on the environment. Our facility re-uses 95% of its water, upcycles its waste into fertilizer and is strategically located just north of NYC, allowing us to deliver to our customers at a fraction of the carbon emissions.
To ensure we maintain a safe and responsible process for our fish, our community and our environment,
we are audited and certified each year by Best Aquaculture Practices and NY State.
In addition, our Steelhead trout is rated Best Choice by Monterey Bay Aquarium Seafood Watch.
