Chinook salmon

Indigenous fish

Chinook salmon is also commonly known as King, Spring, and Tyee.

Whatever you call it, it is renowned for its pleasing red colour, firm flesh and delicate texture. Many people (including chefs) consider Chinook to be one of the most flavourful of the salmon species. Low in saturated fat and high in Omega-3 fatty acids, Chinook salmon is a powerful protein package perfect for a healthy diet.

And, Chinook salmon is indigenous to the Pacific Ocean where Creative Salmon operates, so it is perfectly adapted to the conditions on our farms. Its natural tolerance to sea lice means that sea lice numbers are naturally low and our fish do not require treatment.
