Yellowtail Kingfish

A natural inhabitant of the Southern Ocean in South Australia, the Yellowtail Kingfish are farmed in fish pens within its natural habitat. The Yellowtail Kingfish (Seriola lalandi) is regarded as one of the finest sashimi fish species. The farmed Yellowtail Kingfish is genuinely superior to the wild, with a higher fat content, cleaner flavour and firmer texture making it more versatile, consistent and delicious.

Produced from wild brood stock, hatchery raised fingerlings are grown in an open water culture environment located in the Spencer Gulf, South Australia. The fish feed is also locally produced, and natural from sustainable sources. It is also GMO and land animal product free. Yellowtail Kingfish has naturally high levels of Omega-3 and vitamin E, also making it a healthy eating option.

Sustainability

Grown in compliance with ISO 14001 and ISO 9001 requirements. The use of natural feeds, minimal stocking densities and site fallowing practices, delivers a fish which is totally sustainable using the world’s best practices. The South Australia Yellowtail Kingfish is also Friends of Sea (FOS) Certificated.
