Good products take time and Gigha Halibut is a result of 20 years of dedicated research and development.
Work started on Halibut at the marine hatchery at Otter Ferry on Loch Fyne in 1991with the successful capture and transportation of live wild halibut from the North of Scotland, Iceland and the Faroe Islands.
The challenge then was to work out the life cycle of the halibut and the optimum conditions for each stage. What sets halibut apart from other marine species is the long and protracted larval rearing stage.
It took much longer than anticipated to master the art of growing halibut.
The Isle of Gigha surrounded by the Atlantic Ocean was identified as a very suitable site for the ongrowing stage and in 2006 Gigha Halibut was established. Harvesting began in 2007 and the company has been providing premium Atlantic halibut to the market week in week out since that time.
The consistency of quality and the sustainable credentials of Gigha halibut delivered by dedicated people have been the key to success.
