Ōra King is the culmination of a classical breeding program that has spanned two decades and is designed to yield only the highest quality King salmon with the most appealing taste, texture and color.
Sustainably raised with selective grading and careful handling, the New Zealand King Salmon Company allows only its finest quality King salmon to be labeled Ōra King – those that best represent the superior culinary attributes of this unique breed.
Within hours of harvest, highly trained staff prepare the salmon for dispatch to the customer. Each salmon is individually handled to remove the gills, viscera and kidney line and carefully cleaned.
Master Graders then carefully review each salmon for size, color and quality. Once graded, an individually numbered Ōra King gill tag is attached to each fish, to allow for authenticity of origin and traceability for customers.
Most importantly, ora king salmon come from the first and only king salmon ocean-farm to receive the Green Choice rating from the Seafood Watch program. This rating gives you the peace of mind that this fish is a sustainable choice.
