Our Producers

Sanford Ltd King Salmon

Producer: King Salmon - Chinook

About This Producer:

In the southern most inhabited island of New Zealand, Stewart Island, where the water is cool and clean all year round we farm raise Chinook or King Salmon. Our 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.

King salmon flesh is an attractive dark pink to red colour. Its oil content is higher than any other salmon and it is a rich source of Omega-3 fatty acids.

Range & Habitat:

New Zealand & Australia
