The Virtues of Our King

The nutritional virtues of King Salmon

There is increasing recognition of the clear health benefits of eating fish regularly, particularly oily fish. Oily fish are those with the natural oils distributed throughout the flesh and are consequently of very high nutritional value.

King salmon has the highest natural oil content of all salmon - a naturally rich source of healthy marine long chain Omega-3s. A 150g portion of King salmon provides the complete daily requirement of Omega-3.  Long chain Omega-3s have important heart health benefits, may be beneficial for the joints, and keep immune systems in good shape.

Long chain Omega-3s are also important for a healthy mind at all life stages, especially in young children where Omega-3s are vital for development of the brain and eyes.
