Succulent wild king (chinook) salmon is the richest and most succulent of all wild Pacific salmon, with unequalled omega-3 levels.
Just as in sport fishing, our king salmon are line-harvested from small boats. To preserve their fresh-caught quality, our king salmon are iced immediately and flash-frozen within a few hours of leaving the water.
King salmon nutrition
In addition to ample protein, king salmon offers abundant omega-3s, as well as unrivaled levels of vitamin D and astaxanthin (as-tuh-zan-thin).
These amounts are per 6 oz portion, and will vary annually and by harvest location:
- Omega-3s – About 3,319mg of omega-3 EPA+DHA, or 6 to 13 times more than the minimum daily EPA+DHA intake recommended by most world health authorities (250-500mg).
- Vitamin D3 – About 400 IU in the optimal D3 form, which is more than most other fish, and more than any fortified food, approaching the child-to-adult US RDA of 600 IU.
- Astaxanthin – About 1.49 mg (red king). This red-orange pigment is a carotenoid-class nutrient with unique health benefits. Astaxanthin content varies by color: Red king portions have the most while ivory king portions have the least.
