This Salmon Farm actually allows you to go into the farm to have a look at the salmon in the water. The water is quite reflective so it’s hard to spot the salmon in the water. However, feeding the fish will encourage them out to the surface to nibble at the food and we could see the fish at the surface. Sometimes if there are bunch of them, they will fight for the food resulting in lots of splashing about and causing us to be wet from the food fight. The food comes in small containers placed at the entrance of the farm and is free but a donation box is there for you to contribute to the food cost.
Fresh sashimi is also available for purchase at the front counter. Ever so often, staff will come out from the preparation room with boxes of sashimi and placed in a large container fridge. Fresh salmon fillets are also available for purchase in a separate container fridge. I couldn’t resist both and bought both the sashimi for immediate consumption and the salmon fillets back to the apartment to cook for dinner. I would personally have preferred to witness the fish being taken out of the water and prepared in front of me so that we know it’s fresh but they don’t do it here.
This place was slightly more pricey than the other shop we went before this but I didn’t mind paying for fresh quality sashimi. I would rather not risk a stomach upset in the middle of my holiday than to pay cheap and suffer the consequences.
The only downside for me is that there are no beverages being sold. A cup of warm green tea would go down very well with the sashimi. Overall 4 stars for this visit.
