About New Zealand King Salmon
King salmon (Oncorhynchus tschawytscha) are the largest of the Pacific salmon and are also referred to as ‘Quinnat’ or ‘Chinook’ salmon. They are native to the north west coast of North America and North East Asia. In the 1980s 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, while the rest of the world farms the more common Atlantic salmon species (Salmo salar).
