With over 50 years of experience, the company was established in 1956 as the first organic aquiculture farm in Spain. Our determination, passion & commitment is Research + Development + Innovation.
At first, PSN primarily bred organic rainbow trout, however by 1985, it was decided that the company needed to adapt to the ever changing market, and introduce a new species. After intensive years of testing to see which animal would best suit the Riofrio waters, PSN decided on the “Acipenser Naccarii” sturgeon, a sturgeon native to the region.
Our installations account for approximately 90,000m2 of land and approximately 50,000 m2 of water. The source of the water is a natural spring, over 1,400 metres deep, and below a mountain made of sedimentary rock. The water is of an exceedingly high quality, with a constant temperature of between 13ºC and 15ºC, and an output of around 2,500 to 3,000 litres per second.
For PSN to be certified as organic breeders, we have to comply with a very strict set of standards, set out by the Organic Aquiculture Committee for Andalusia (for further information, please visit www.caae.es). These rules specify that the animals must live without the routine use of antibiotics, growth hormones and must not be genetically modified. Total respect for the environment and total respect for the well being of the animal.
