OUR KING SALMON
NEW ZEALAND KING SALMON
Less than 1% of global salmon production is New Zealand King Salmon – also known as Chinook Salmon. This rare species is notoriously difficult to produce so most salmon consumed globally is Atlantic Salmon. King Salmon must be farmed with care in superior conditions with plenty of space to thrive and minimal handling.
Our Big Glory Bay King Salmon are sustainably ocean farmed in the pristine coastal waters of Big Glory Bay, in Stewart Island, located at the very bottom of New Zealand. The bay’s pure waters are constantly refreshed by cold currents, keeping the temperature at a chilly 12°C (54°F). That slows the salmon’s growth, giving it time to develop its distinctive rich, smooth flavour.
Big Glory Bay’s isolation, and the purity of its waters, means our fish have always been disease and lice free. We have never had to treat our fish with antibiotics.
We have the credentials to prove our commitment to the wellbeing of our salmon and the sustainability of our environment. Our Big Glory Bay salmon farm is proudly Best Aquaculture Practices (BAP) certified. New Zealand King Salmon is also the first ocean-farmed salmon to achieve the ‘best choice’ green rating from the Monterey Bay Aquarium's Seafood Watch® programme.
Welcome to some of the best salmon in the world.
