Arctic Char, the Salmonid of Tomorrow

Valorēs led a Canada-wide project on the development of aquaculture and the profitable marketing of Arctic char in Canada. This species of salmonid, present especially in the northern regions, has remarkable qualities both by its flavour and the delicacy of its flesh. Inland fish farming is an environment that suits him very well and this makes the Arctic char a perfect candidate for sustainable aquaculture.
