SAMPLER BOX: Trout, Char & Pickerel
5lb box — $68 10lb box — $115
Try all three fish in a box we nicknamed the ‘tri-fish-ta’!
Every box is one third rainbow trout (4 – 6 fillets in 10lb box), one third Arctic char (4 – 6 fillets) and one third pickerel (4 - 6 fillets). All fish is individually vacuum-sealed, pinboned and frozen at peak freshness.
All Springhills rainbow trout and Arctic char are raised on our family’s farms in Grey County. Their incredible taste is thanks to our humane and sustainable raising methods. All Springhills fish are grown at small-scale farms with natural spring water, low densities and special diets.
All Springhills pickerel (sometimes called walleye) is wild caught from Lake Erie. It comes from a wild fishery that is internationally recognized as sustainable by the Marine Stewardship Council, which means it’s good for the environment and safe to eat.
Arctic char is a rare fish originating from Canada’s North. It has a milder and sweeter flavour than its distant cousin, the trout. Pickerel is esteemed for its light succulent flavour with a fine, flaked texture.
We pride ourselves on offering the freshest fish available at your door. Springhills trout and char are humanely harvested, filleted and frozen in the same day, while Springhills pickerel is immediately submersed in ice during harvest and frozen immediately after filleting. They will keep up to 12 months in your freezer.
Springhills is a second-generation family business run by siblings Arlen and RJ Taylor. We grow rainbow trout, Arctic char and coho salmon, and also partner with independently-owned businesses to bring you an even wider variety of Ontario fish.
Note: All Springhills fish are pinboned. We inspect every fillet after deboning, but we do warn you that the odd pinbone sneaks through!
