Stolt Sea Farm launches King sole

The company raises the fish for more than two years to achieve a weight of more than 500 grams.

Prodemar, the turbot and sole brand of Stolt Sea Farm, will be launching its new King sole at the upcoming show in Brussels, Belgium.

The company, which is owned by Stolt-Nielsen, said it is the "largest sole in aquaculture."

It uses a breeding technique, which is "both environment friendly and respects the welfare of the fish," and consequently the company is able to offer "a more ecological sole with a better yield."

The fish is certified under Friend of the Sea (FoS) and GlobalGAP, and weighs more than 500gr, measuring between 30 and 50 centimeters.

Stolt Sea Farm is the world's largest farmed sole producer, with an annual capacity of 850 metric tons distributed between its three farms in Spain, France and Iceland.

In addition, it is a leader in farmed turbot production, with a capacity of 5,400 metric tons, and also one of the most important producers of white Sturgeon Caviar, with an annual production of 10 metric tons.
