Sanford Limited King Salmon  (Oncorhynchus tshawytscha)

Salmon King

The King salmon species makes up less than 0.5% of the global salmon population, yet is regarded by many as the pinnacle salmon species. King salmon boast bright silver skin. They have a rounder mid-section in comparison to the longer, thinner body of the common Atlantic salmon species, resulting in a generous fillet. King salmon have a bright, vibrant orange flesh colour, which contrasts attractively with the marbled fat lines for unsurpassed plate appeal. King salmon are naturally high in healthy Omega-3s – up to twice that found in Atlantic salmon. This also greatly reduces the risk of over-cooking as the higher oil content keeps the salmon moist. Sanford Limited is combating the surmounting pressures of over fishing wild Salmon by producing a gold standard in sustainable Salmon Aquaculture.
In the southern most inhabited island of New Zealand, Stewart Island, where the water is cool and clean all year round, Stanford’s Chinook  King Salmon are raised. Sanford’s natural breeding program produces eggs that are grown out to young fry at our two hatcheries located on two of the largest and cleanest rivers that have their origins in the snow fed glaciers in the Southern Alps of New Zealand… the Clutha and Waitaki rivers. Their continued attention to quality and eco-friendly practices make Stanford a brilliant choice for King Salmon.
