Fattoria del Pesce was selected for the supply of the Friend of the Sea certified rainbow trout at the 9th edition of Teatro del Silenzio, which was held on July 20. National and international artists of classical and pop music performed in concert in the unique scenario of the Tuscan hills of Lajatico, near Siena. The event was organized as usual by Maestro Andrea Bocelli with the extraordinary participation of Placido Domingo, who directed the orchestra.
Salotti del Gusto – a network of producers, operators and lovers who promote the identity, authenticity and passion for Italian food and wine – took care of the catering for guests and artists offering them haute cuisine dishes prepared with quality products.
The company “Fattoria del Pesce”, consisting of farmers with decades of experience in aquaculture, achieved the Friend of the Sea certification in January 2013, being fully compliant with Friend of the Sea standard, in terms of water quality, waste management and energy efficiency.
Fattoria del Pesce s.r.l.
The company farms Oncorhynchus mikyss (rainbow trout) and, occasionally, other salmonids and cyprinids, such as the brown trout (Salmo trutta), char (Salvelinus alpinus and Salvelinus fontinalis) and carp (Cyprinus carpio) in the variants “queen” and “mirror”. The pure spring waters that supply the sites allow fish to breed from very high quality organoleptic and nutritional characteristics, ideal for diets that require intake of phosphorus and “omega 3” fatty acids.
