St. Louis-based Straub’s Markets on Tuesday announced it now offers AquaChile’s Verlasso salmon.

The announcement comes on the heels of Verlasso’s ranking as a “Good Alternative” from Monterey Bay Aquarium’s Seafood Watch program.

“Straub’s has a reputation for providing the freshest, most delicious seafood to generations of St. Louis families, and Verlasso salmon’s mild flavor and buttery-yet-firm texture that home cooks love fits perfectly among their current seafood offerings,” said Scott Nichols, Verlasso director.

“With our MBA seal of approval, seafood lovers can trust that Verlasso raises salmon sustainably, in a way that reduces dependency on over-harvested wild feeder fish stocks. Straub’s shoppers also can verify the fish they’re buying is Verlasso right at the seafood counter through the QR-coded gill tag we attach to every fish that traces it back to the farm where it was raised.”
