The farms that supply ChalkStream®️ are built on the sites of old water mills. The mill races provide a huge volume of water allowing the fish to grow in a constant current mirroring their natural river environment.
Unlike the earth pond system of most freshwater farms, our fish are grown in custom designed, gravel bottomed tanks and raceways to create the cleanest possible growing conditions.
Being land based, the farms are able to share the water while remaining fully separated from the chalk stream rivers . This minimises the risk of escapees and allows us to return clean water to the rivers, avoiding the health and environmental issues associated with sea and loch related fish.
