Seafood carbon emissions tool Chinook salmon (Oncorhynchus tshawytscha), Farmed, System: Marine net pen, Notes: Feed conversion ratios and feed compositions were available for New Zealand production of Chinook salmon, and energy use rates for Atlantic salmon marine net pens were used to produce this estimate. Values are similar to those expected for Atlantic salmon production, although slightly higher due to greater use of animal-based feed inputs. No LCA studies have been undertaken specifically on Chinook salmon culture.
