Monterey Bay Aquarium Seafood Watch: Best Choice.
Exceptional Culinary Standards
Ora King salmon is the first choice for discerning chefs around the world. The high oil content naturally present in the Ora King breed can be seen in the striking marbled fat lines within the bright orange flesh, instantly drawing comparison to Wagyu.
Bred to be King.
Ora King’s breeding program has seen over 20 years of genetics expertise and sustainable husbandry practices creating eight generations of King salmon. This has produced over 100 distinct King salmon families, chose so that only the finest examples — with the most appealing taste, texture, color, and size — are carried forward to subsequent generations. King salmon eggs are nurtured in crystal clear wasters from Te Waikoropupu Springs at their hatchery in Takaka, NZ. With an average of 14,00 liters of fresh water bubbling to the surface of the springs every second, the waters of this region have been verified as some of the clearest in the world.
