About Klemtu Spirit
This Indigenous-made seafood product features farm-raised Atlantic salmon from the clean, cool waters off Swindle Island, which is located more than 500 kilometres north of Vancouver. Klemtu Spirit is carefully prepared and hand-packed in ready-to-eat, 113-gram portions by the Kitasoo/Xai’xais First Nation, who live and work in the oceanside town of Klemtu.
The 100% Canadian salmon is brined and hot smoked in the traditional West Coast way at a B.C. processing plant where 90% of employees are Indigenous. Smoked with local Canadian alder wood to enhance the sweet and savoury flavours while ensuring a delicate texture, Klemtu Spirit offers a balanced flavour for all to enjoy. It is perfect for sharing, crafted with pride and shipped frozen. The salmon is sourced using sustainable practices, certified by a third-party.
Indigenous people have been carefully smoking salmon with simple ingredients for many generations. Canadians can now experience the fresh and delicious taste of Klemtu Spirit Hot Smoked Atlantic Salmon for purchase at Walmart Canada stores across the country.
