An exceptional, surprising fish. The Spencer Gulf Hiramasa Kingfish is large and imposing. In the water, it’s big. It looks powerful and masterful. But when it’s landed, it’s a much more delicate proposition: its flesh retains layers of subtlety and intrigue. Japanese sushi masters consider Kingfish the best fish in the world for sashimi. It’s firm but distinctively delicate.The taste is unparalleled. Sweet. Fresh. It lasts just the right amount of time on the palate. It can carry other flavours while retaining its own sublime characteristics. It can be mildly cured or marinated in lime juice. It can be slow-cooked, pan fried, or BBQ. The ways are endless….

These glacial waters, when combined with the sea water in the fjords, provide the best possible conditions for trout.
