Welcome to Road 17 Arctic Char
DelicaSea is a family company producing Road 17 Arctic Char. We supply our fish to restaurants across Canada. Our farm is totally sustainable, and has achieved Oceanwise approval and SeaChoice rating as green or best choice. We strive to create an environment more consistent than nature. The ethics of our farm provide a comfortable habitat where healthy fish thrive.
Why “Hand Raised” is better
Because our well is pathogen free and our facility is enclosed, we do not need antibiotics, growth hormones, or other medications for our fish. From the moment it arrives on our farm as a tiny eyed egg; we carefully watch, nurture, and handle each fish with care. It takes 2 years of careful attention to raise a healthy Arctic Charr.
It’s all about the water
The foundation of our farm is that we draw cold water from a pathogen free aquafer. Our disciplined biosecurity program mitigates risk of disease. Water retention time is one hour before it is cleaned and enters the Okanagan River water basin system again. Our facility utilizes state of the art systems to insure consistent water quality and temperature. Our electronic feeding system maintains near perfect feed distribution and portioning. We employ cutting edge electronic systems to control CO2 levels and maintain oxygen within precise parameters. Dozens of water conditions are monitored and alarms alert us of any changes that could jeopardize fish health.
Local, sustainable, healthy and delicious, what more can you ask for from the food that will feed your family. Delicasea’s Arctic Char is the future.Rob Clark
