On June 22, 2012, the IUP Academy of Culinary Arts became the first culinary school east of the Mississippi River to sample the specialty fish Skuna Bay Salmon.
Sandra Ewing from Euclid Fish Company brought samples of this hand-chosen, hand-cleaned, and inspected salmon for culinary faculty and students to prepare and taste.
Skuna Bay Salmon is craft-raised in Vancouver Island, British Columbia, Canada, and is the highest quality salmon available.
Euclid Fish Company, a fourth-generation, family-owned business from Menter, Ohio, is one out of only four companies in the United States contracted to wholesale Skuna Bay Salmon.
With a focus on being socially responsible, Euclid Fish Company uses no chemicals in their processing and ships products in recyclable, environmentally friendly packaging.
The company has been supplying the Culinary Arts program at IUP with fresh seafood for over five years and, according to culinary faculty member Chef Gary Fitting, offer “the best fish available with the best taste I have ever had.”
