From one of the most stunning and remote locations in the world, discover Big Glory Bay in Stewart Island, New Zealand where world renowned Big Glory Bay King Salmon are nurtured in glorious isolation.

Farmed at Big Glory Bay, bordering a national park, conditions couldn’t be more perfect for raising New Zealand King Salmon, also known as Chinook. The pure waters of the bay are constantly refreshed by cold currents, keeping the temperature at a chilly57.2°F.

This means the salmon grow slowly and are harvested at the peak of their condition to deliver a rich, smooth flavor, with a buttery melt-in-mouth texture. Higher fat levels can be seen in the clear, thick marbled lines and gives the flesh a smoother, softer texture. A highly versatile protein, Big Glory Bay King Salmon is perfect for sashimi or can be pan fried, baked, grilled or barbecued.

Farmed Sustainably and with Care

A lot of time, effort and energy goes into breeding, raising, and growing the perfect salmon and we have actively taken steps to protect the environment and monitor the salmon wellbeing.

This is to ensure it reaches you in optimal condition. King Salmon are challenging to grow and as a result, we have less fish per pen than most other salmon farms. We are 100% committed to sustainable salmon farming and our efforts have been recognized by the highest authority in Aquaculture. We have been awarded the green rating from the Seafood Watch at Monterey Bay Aquarium–indicating King Salmon farmed in New Zealand is a ‘best choice’ for consumers. Big Glory Bay’s salmon farming and processing operations also meet the rigorous Best Aquaculture Practices (BAP)certification standards. Within the pristine waters of Big Glory Bay, our King Salmon have been disease and lice free since our farm was first developed. As a result, we have never had to treat our King Salmon with antibiotics. We also monitor the environmental impact of our farms annually and move our farm every 2 years to minimize the impact on the ocean floor and we rest the farmed area for 5 years.

You can be sure that every step from ‘sea to service’ is a testament to our commitment to animal wellbeing, the environment, social integrity, and the health of our customers and consumers. The care we show ensure our Big Glory Bay King Salmon are delivered to you at the peak of their condition to deliver a rich, smooth flavor, with a tender melt-in-mouth texture that your customers will love every time.
