Atlantic cod is the most important fish species for commercial fishing in Norway, and has been a solid base of income for the population along the vast Norwegian coastline for decades.
The world´s largest stock of Atlantic cod is located in Norwegian waters and can be devided into two groups; the migratory, oceanic cod and the non-migratory coastal cod.The main seasons for Atlantic Cod is January-April and September-December. All our cod is MSC-Certified.
The bottom-dwelling Atlantic haddock, is normally found on depths between 80 and 300 meters. The Atlantic haddock is a popular specie with a delicate flavour. It has a more coarse texture of the flesh, compared with the Atlantic cod, and has much better bonding qualities. Consequently, the haddock often occur as main ingredient in minced fish products and processed fish meals.
Atlantic Haddock is available all year, except for the summer months of June and July. All our haddock is of course MSC-certified.
Atlantic Saithe is also a bottom dweller and can be found at depths between 0 and 300 meters. It swims and feeds in shoals, similar to the pelagic species of mackerel and herring.
Atlantic Saithe is available all year round, and the good health of the stock ensure that it is also MSC-certified.
The pollack is both a bottom-dwelling – and pelagic fish that swims in shoals. Its behaviour and look is similar to the saithe, but it is distinguished by a protruding jaw. It is found at depths of between 0 and 200 meters. Pollack is usually caught as a bycatch when fishing for cod and is considered a tasty fish. The texture of the flesh is firm which makes it well suited for frying and poaching. The Pollack is one of the main recreational fishery species in Norway.
The greenland halibut belongs to the flatfish family and is a bottom dweller.
It is found at depths of between 600 and 1200 meters, but only where the ocean keeps a temperature of below 4°C. The greenland halibut can reach a weight of 45kg. The fishing for Greenland halibut is mainly carries out between June and August, but it is also available as by-catch the rest of the year.
Ling is part of the rockling family of cod fishes, a bottom dweller that swins in schools or alone. They thrive on deep waters around 350 meters below sea. It can become up to 210 centimeters long and weigh up to 45 kg. Average length is however approx. 1 meter. Available all year.
The tusk, also know as cusk - is a bottom-dwelling fish that thrives in rocky areas. It is found at depths ranging from 100 to 1000 meters, but it is most common between 200 and 500 meters. The flesh is very white with a firm texture which makes it excellent for frying and baking.
Tusk fishing is carried out year-round.
Redfish is a pelagic fish, found at depths between 100-500 meters. Redfish is mainly a by-catch product from trawl fisheries, available in the North Sea and the Barents Sea, but it can also be found in the Norwegian fjords. Fishing for redfish is an all year activity, but main catching season is during the summer months.
The texture of the redfish is rather soft, and has a rich taste. Makes a perfect raw material for both grilling and frying.Redfish is mainly sold headed and gutted, Norwegian cut or Japanese cut.
