Stockfish

In Norway we have a large fishing for Cod (Gadus Morhua), Saithe (Polacchius Virens), Haddock (Melanogrammus aeglefinus) and Tusk (Brosme Brosme).

A portion of these are airdried (see ill. below) to the famous Norwegian Stockfish- a product known since the Viking Age. The fish is hung for several months to be dried in the cold, clean air in Norway.

We export the stockfish worldwide - our main markets being Africa and the US.


Normal packing is Hessian Bales of 45 kilos net, packed into hessian clothing (see illustration of products).

An importanf by-product is dried codheads, dried in a similar way as the stockfish.
This forms a somewhat cheaper product than the Stockfish. The cod heads are packed into hessian bags of 30 kilos.
The main market for this product is the West African countries but other markets are also developing.

The stockfish is Atlantic cod (Gadus Morhua) og Saythe (Pollachius virens)
