A unique breed of KING salmon for culinary excellence

Our Salmon

Ōra King has been perfecting sustainable husbandry practices and breeding expertise for a quarter of a century. Through New Zealand King Salmon’s programme we have created a unique breed, called Ōra King, genetically distinct from any other King salmon found in New Zealand or the world.

Our Commitment

From the crystal clear waters flowing from Te Waikoropupū Springs in Takaka, to the pure and isolated sea waters of the Marlborough Sounds, Ōra King are raised in tune with nature.
