Oncorhynchus Keta Habitat: Alaska – North Pacific Average size: 3,6 Kg. Size limits: 1 – 5,5 Kg. Chum salmon harmonizes a firm texture and fine flavour with a moderate price. Keta produces the largest and most appreciated salmon caviar (ikura in Japanese) in the market. Keta salmon meat contains only 4-5 % fat, and the colour of its meat shows more variation than that of other species. This translates into a very competitive price, similar to that of farmed salmon, and offers exceptional value to the chef who appreciates intrinsic quality beyond appearances. Keta salmon is suitable for tartares, marinades and minimal cooking methods that seal in the juices.
