Editor's Note Publisher Mary Larkin / Associate Publisher / Editor Fiona Robinson / Senior Editor, SeaFood Business James Wright / Assistant Editor, SeaFood Business Melissa Wood / Online Editor, SeafoodSource Sean Murphy / Salmon: It's on the plate Assistant Editor, SeafoodSource April Forristall / Contributing Editors W elcome to our unofcial farmed salmon issue; you'll see the fsh mentioned in a variety of features. An overview of the farmed salmon supply and market trends can be found in the Top Species feature on page 28. In the U.S. market, suppliers are focused on branding to get a foot in the door with potential buyers. Skuna Bay, Black Pearl, Marine Harvest, Verlasso, Cooke Aquaculture and many others are all jockeying for position in a competitive market. Branding the salmon with a story to grab buyers' attention is clearly making inroads. Our monthly Retail Report column from Nielsen Perishables Group delves into salmon data from the fsh counter. It's interesting to see that promotional volume accounted for approximately one-quarter of total supermarket salmon sales in 2012. Please note the data NPG receives includes all salmon, both farmed and wild. Right before we went to press the news broke of Infectious Salmon Anemia (ISA) resurfacing at two Chilean salmon farms. An update on that situation can be found in the News section on page 12. Buyers regularly deal with the ups and downs of supply issues, and this is just one to add to the list. ISA can't be fully eradicated from a farm site, so this surely won't be the last we hear about the problem. Te latest farmed salmon to enter my kitchen at home was Ōra king salmon from New Zealand. Pan-roasted with just a hint of seasoning, it melted like butter in the mouth and was the perfect introduction to this particular fsh. I hope you get to enjoy a similar salmon meal occasion in the near future, whether it's farmed or wild.
