In 1984, after researching the potential for sea-rearing salmon, Akaroa farmer, Tom Bates selected Lucas Bay, a deep-water bay near the entrance to Akaroa Harbour, as the site for the proposed salmon farm.
Features that make Akaroa Salmon unique:
Akaroa Salmon is a reflection of its environment, and we do everything possible to maintain and protect the ocean.
The farm is situated in Canterbury the home of NZ's wild salmon.
Ideal water temperatures and current flows.
Sea-reared salmon is renowned for its superior taste, texture and consistency over its fresh water relative.
Close monitoring and hand feeding in multiple cages.
Extremely low stocking densities.
No antibiotics used.
Salmon is harvested up to 6 times a week.
Speed is the key - 6 to 24 hours from the ocean to the plate.
We deal direct, ensuring the quality chain cannot be compromised.
