It’s time to update the We Supply Yachts Rarest list (#WSYRarest). Like we mentioned in our last WSY TV episode, we want to add one special/rare item to our productlist each month. This time we have a new beauty on the We Supply Yachts productlist, the Ōra King Salmon.
Ōra King have been perfecting sustainable husbandry practices and breeding expertise for a quarter of a century. Through New Zealand King Salmon’s programme they have created a unique breed, called Ōra King, genetically distinct from any other King salmon found in New Zealand or the world.
New Zealand King Salmon have been perfecting sustainable husbandry practices and breeding expertise for a quarter of a century. New Zealand King Salmon’s classical breeding programme has produced nine generations of King salmon, creating over 100 distinct salmon families, chosen so that only the finest examples — with the most appealing taste, texture, colour and size — are carried forward to the next generation.
Through this programme they have created a unique breed, called Ōra King, genetically distinct from any other King salmon found in New Zealand or the world.
“Ōra King is to salmon as wagyu is to beef”
Their feed is derived of specifically selected ingredients and contain only the essential nutrients needed for healthy salmon. The formulation of our feed changes to meet the dietary requirements of our King salmon throughout their lifecycle.
Automatic feeders are used to dispense several meals each day — more often when salmon are smaller, and less often as they grow. Underwater cameras closely monitor appetite and activity during each feed, to ensure our salmon receive just the right amount and no feed is wasted.
They are focused on creating the world’s finest King salmon whilst responsibly managing our resources for the long term. Fish welfare is a priority for their business. A healthy, low-stress environment for our salmon results in higher survival rates, superior fish quality and less impact on our environment.
