Musholm is an aquaculture company specialized in sea farming of trout of the species oncorhynchus mykiss. Our production is vertically integrated as we cover the entire life cycle of the fish from egg and smolt to large fish reared in sea farms.
Musholm has a modern processing plant and computerized traceability system for complete tracking of all its products. Our head office is situated in the port of Reerso approx. 110 km west of Copenhagen. Our hatcheries and smolt farms are situated in Jutland and our sea farms in the Great Belt. Fresh trout from Musholm is available during the harvest season from October till beginning of January. The remaining part of the year, we primarily sell frozen trout.
At 2-3 years of age the trout is harvested and has attained sizes ranging from 1 to 5 kg with a majority between 2-3 kg and 3-4 kg. We calibrate the fish in intervals of 500g, but different sizes are available upon request. We grade the trout according to meat color on the Roche scale in 13-1 4/R, 14-15/R and 15-16/R. In addition to whole trout, Musholm offers a range of value added trout products such as fillets, steaks, and portions for reprocessing, catering and retail – for private label or Musholm brand. Musholm also produces trout roe into various products, e.g. Sujiko and Ikura for the Japanese market, – and fresh and frozen trout eggs (caviar), lightly salted, pasteurized in jars or naturel in special packings for food-service and retailers.
