At Mt Cook Alpine Salmon, we know water is a key ingredient in creating great tasting salmon. As our Hatchery Manager puts it ‘you can’t have the world's finest salmon, without the world’s finest water supply.’ Luckily, here in the Southern Alps, we have just that.
Our water flows straight from the glaciers of Mt Cook National Park. It's so pure you can drink it, above and below the farm
Roughly 2 million gallons of this pure glacier fed water passes through our farms every minute, creating an ever-changing, refreshed environment for our Freshwater King Salmon.
