King (chinook) salmon is the richest, most luscious member of the Pacific salmon family, with the highest omega-3 levels.
Line-caught on small boats, our king salmon is iced immediately and flash-frozen to preserve its fresh-caught quality.
Pure and wholesome
Wild Pacific salmon ranks among the purest of all ocean fish, which is why the EPA, FDA, Alaska Division of Public Health, and consumer organizations recommend it without reservation.
King salmon nutrition
Wild king (Chinook) salmon top all wild species for fat and omega-3 content, and is very rich in vitamin D.
In addition to ample protein, king salmon offers unrivaled levels of omega-3s, and abounds in vitamin D and the beneficial red-orange, carotenoid-class antioxidant pigment called astaxanthin (as-tuh-zan-thin).
These amounts are per 6 oz portion, and will vary annually and by harvest location:
- Omega-3s – Provides six to 13 times more than the minimum daily EPA+DHA intake recommended by most world health authorities (250-500mg).
- Vitamin D3 – Provides one- to two-thirds of the child-to-adult US RDA (600 IU) … more than almost all other fish, and far more than any fortified food.
- 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: King portions have the most while Ivory King portions have the least.
