A Heritage of Excellence

From Early Introductions to Global Acclaim

Tracing back to 1983, our Big Glory Bay King Salmon's journey began with a strong vision. Originating from the Sacramento River's Chinook, these salmon have carved a niche in New Zealand's aquatic tapestry, with Big Glory Bay now celebrated globally for its exceptional salmon, recognized for both its quality and flavor.

The Big Glory Bay Difference
Sustained by Cold Waters and Isolation
Our King Salmon, raised in the oceanic haven of Big Glory Bay, are a rarity, making up less than 1% of global salmon production. The bay's cold temperatures nurture a slow growth, cultivating a King Salmon with a unique, rich flavor profile, free from diseases, lice, and the need for antibiotics.
