These fast swimmers are farmed in sea cages in their wild natural habitat of the Southern Ocean in Boston Bay, Arno Bay, Fitzgerald Bay and the Spencer Gulf.
Wild Yellowtail Kingfish are used to produce the fingerlings. These are raised in hatcheries and farmed in sea cages, ensuring the fish aren’t exposed to parasites that ruin the flesh.
The Yellowtail Kingfish are harvested and killed using the humane Japanese iki jime method, then placed in ice slurry to maintain the quality and freshness of their flesh.
