NZ King Salmon offer a variety of delicious, versatile and sustainable salmon products to a range of discerning chefs, retailers, and wholesalers both in New Zealand, and worldwide. Their brands include Regal, Southern Ocean and premium food service brand, Ōra King.
King salmon were introduced into New Zealand from northern California as a game fish in the late 19th Century. However it wasn’t until the 1980s that New Zealand entrepreneurs sought to develop salmon farms in the cool, deep waters of the Marlborough Sounds.
King salmon is the only salmon species farmed in New Zealand, with The New Zealand King Salmon Co Ltd being the world’s major supplier, producing just over 50% of the world’s supply.
