- This member of the salmon family is an environmentally friendly alternative to farmed salmon.
- Char are mostly raised in tanks and raceways onshore, unlike salmon which are generally raised in open netpens in coastal waters.
- Onshore systems discharge less pollution and are much less likely to let fish and parasites escape than netpens.
