Mt Cook salmon farm

Chinook salmon are commercially farmed in a hydroelectric canal that diverts water from Lake Tekapo into Lake Pūkaki. They are fed and reared in floating cages moored to the banks, until they are big enough to be harvested. Most farmed salmon world-wide are Atlantic salmon. New Zealand is the world's largest producer of farmed Chinook salmon.
