While king salmon are arguably one of the most sought after fish for sport anglers, they are also one of the finest delicacies to grace your table. But, did you know that kings can have differently colored flesh--red, white or even marbled? No matter the color, they are exactly the same species of fish.  Ivory "white" King Salmon is just as delicious as Red King Salmon.

Ivory King Salmon, also known as "White" have a silky, buttery, mild, melt-in-your mouth flavor.  A diet that includes wild salmon has been shown to yield health benefits. Some studies have shown that king salmon-- red or white-- are very similar in terms of their composition of healthy lipids, moisture, protein and omega-3 fatty acids, or the “good” fats.

Today, the white or ivory king is highly sought after and brings a premium price at the market or restaurant. Catching a white king is entirely by chance, so their availability to both the sport angler and consumer is highly variable, depending on the luck of the day.

How does Ivory or "White" King salmon gets its color?

King Salmon get their deep red from pigments from crustaceans in their diet.  While rare, only 1 in 20 may turn up with a luxurious ivory flesh.  It was believed, the red and white king salmon consumed different diets.  It is now believed, the Ivory or "White" king salmon simply are unable to process the pigments from the crustaceans in their diet.  Salmon consume crustaceans such as crab, krill and shrimp rich in astaxanthin.  the ability to process these pigments is controlled by genetics.  Since Ivory "white" King salmon do not have the ability to metabolize these pigments, the flesh remains white.

  1. Delicious Ivory King Salmon 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 6th Jun 2019

    Never previously ordered the Ivory King Salmon. The frozen Copper River King Salmon was not available. The Ivory King is delicious. I think a bit more mild than the King, but very good.
