Norway Lobster – Nephrops norvegicus
For decades, Chrisfish has supplied our customers with Norway lobsters purchased at our local fish auctions and handled direct landings of sustainable, MSC-certified trawlers to our warehouse in Frederikshavn.
The Norway lobster is fished all year round in the Kattegat, the Skagerrak, and the North Sea. Night fishing is most common in the summer, while fishing during daytime is preferred in winter.
‘The gold of Kattegat’ is highly valued, especially by our southern European customers, and with our investment in state-of-the-art production equipment, we can fulfil virtually all wishes regarding sizes and packages.
Our Norway lobsters are packed fresh or quick-frozen in nitrogen freezers. The latter method gives the thawed product a quality that is close to the original, both in terms of taste and appearance
Our brine products come in a range of pot sizes, from 100 g to 10 kg. Smaller pot sizes such as 170 g and 450 g are bought by the retail sector, while the 900 g pots are most popular with our food service and wholesale customers. We supply the biggest pots, from 6 to 10 kg, to commercial salad manufacturers and sandwich chains.
The concept of private labels is a rapidly growing business area, which almost all supermarket chains globally have incorporated into their business strategy. At Chrisfish we produce large batches of stock products as private labels on behalf of both national and international retail and wholesale customers.
