First Senegal Soles Slaughtered by Stolt Sea Farm

The first Senegal soles were slaughtered and packed at Stolt Sea Farm at Hafnir, a new fish farm in Southwest Iceland, on Wednesday. The first batch were 1,000 fish or about 500 kg (1,100 lb).

“It’s a very big day for us,” commented Pablo García, CEO of Stolt Sea Farm at the occasion. The fish had been bred to a size of 400-500 g each, which is a suitable portion for one person, Morgunblaðið reports.

The fish were stored in seawater mixed with ice and then packed for export at AG Seafood in neighboring town Sandgerði.
