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.
