OUR RESPONSIBILITIES & ETHICAL SOURCING
At Norfisk we are committed to responsible sourcing throughout the supply chain.
Our policies cover food safety and we do everything to ensure our fish comes from stocks that are not endangered.
Independent taste panels have judged our products, paying particular attention to the colour, texture and odour, whilst qualified chefs from the gastronomic institute have assessed the flavour. The conclusion of both groups is that line-caught fish has much higher quality.
Lower greenhouse gas emissions are just one of the benefits of long-lining not to mention wider catching methods. The development of specially-designed bait to catch cod of the required size means a more reliable catch. This in turn has given us the opportunity to eco-certify this type of fish.
We source our fish from a selected group of long liners situated on the west coast of Norway. This close partnership with the fishermen gives us first-hand access to the finest line caught fish there is.
OCEAN WILD -
Our FAS line-caught cod and haddock is super-chilled and hand cut by true professionals resulting in snow-white, firm interleaved fillets
Studies show that line-caught cod accounts for three times less greenhouse gas emissions and energy consumption than that of trawl-caught cod.
WHITER & FIRMER
Quality of line-caught fish is a result from better bleeding of the fish and less compression damage when caught.
We want to ensure that the fish industry is available for generations to come so that everyone is able to have the chance to enjoy safe seafood. Longline fishing is a commercial fishing technique, it uses a long-line called the main line, with baited hooks attached at intervals by means of branch lines called snoods.
When catching by longline the fish is brought on board live, one by one. After catching the processing begins and within three hours the fish is frozen to -18 degrees. This quick freezing process locks in the quality and goodness of the fish, which ensures an outstanding quality.
