What We Do
Norwegian Stockfish from the Arctic
Our stockfish is pure, natural, and unadulterated. For centuries, Norwegians have relied on the power of nature to create this culinary delicacy. Using traditional methods dating back to the Viking age, we dry our fish outdoors in the fresh ocean wind. This process is conducted in Northern Norway, where we source the best raw materials caught above the Arctic circle.
Our fish spends the months of February to May exposed to the elements of Northern Norway, where temperatures hover around 0°C, and the perfect balance of wind, sun, and rain work their magic. With no additives or preservatives, it is nature alone that transforms this magnificent fish into the valuable, special, and delicious stockfish that we offer.
The drying method we use is thousands of years old and has proven to be an effective way to preserve the fish's natural qualities. Stockfish was highly prized by sailors who carried it on their voyages as a valuable source of food. Today, Norwegian stockfish remains a sought-after commodity, appreciated for its all-natural taste and nutritional value.
