THE FUTURE IS IN THE SEA

The wild fish stock is under pressure, but with cod farming it is possible to offset the reduction in catch quotas and meet the demand for cod in the market. We will actively work alongside suppliers of equipment and services to always promote and prioritise the environment and the fish.

NATURAL FRESH COD

The global market demands stable deliveries of fresh cod. For the first time, high-quality farmed cod can be produced on a large scale to meet demand. With wild fish stock under pressure and fishing quotas for cod being cut, Norcod aims to fill the gap in the market and provide sustainable fresh cod.

or 2-3 meals of fish per week.
