Lofoten Viking is one of the largest exporter of stockfish in Norway.
Lofoten is one of the best places in the world for producing stockfish. The further west you go in Lofoten, the better – in Værøy and Røst, conditions are particularly favourable. Visiting the Lofoten Islands in May is an experience for both the nose and the eyes, when knolls and hilltops are covered with fully laden stockfish racks. The island residents open their arms and proudly declare, «That’s our money you see hanging there.»
Stockfish are produced from Cod, Haddock and Saithe.
Stockfish – Cod
Cod is one of the most common and economically important marine fishes in Norway, and one of the best sea foods on the market, with a good source of protein, plenty of vitamin B12 and selenium, and a healthy balance of sodium and potassium.
Stockfish – Saithe
Saithe is both a pelagic and a demersal fish. It swims in shoals, which can be enormous in good habitats with plenty of food. Like the other fish in the cod family, Saithe is an outstanding source of protein. Saithe sorted in length 20/40 cm, 30/50 cm, 50/70 cm, 70/+ cm.
