King Salmon were originally brought to New Zealand from California and are often heralded as the very best salmon species in terms of taste, texture and nutritional quality. This quality has been recognised by world-renowned Monterey Bay Aquarium – who has named New Zealand King Salmon the world’s most environmentally sustainable farmed salmon.
Farmed at Big Glory Bay in Stewart Island, bordering a National Park, King Salmon are available year round. With silver sides and a green back, they are raised in sea cages and are completely free of chemicals and antibiotics.
