Bringing herring to the world

Whether you choose Norwegian spring spawning herring or North Sea herring, you’ll be selecting a deliciously fatty fish. With succulent flavour in every bite, it’s no wonder that herring from Norway has become popular all over the world.

Part of a thriving economy

With around 500 seafood exporters and more than 2000 products distributed in over 140 countries, Norway plays a key role in the international seafood market. In 2019, seafood exports from Norway totalled NOK 51.1 billion, making Norway the largest seafood exporter in the world. That same year, the export value of Norwegian herring was NOK 1.3 billion.

We’re also Europe’s largest marketplace for the first-hand sales of pelagic species. The market is owned and operated by Norwegian fishermen, which ensures they secure a fair price at e-auction.

Exporting our fish isn’t just about the economy. Sustainability is at the heart of everything we do and we want to ensure that our children (and their children!) can enjoy the same delicious seafood that we do. By exporting our fish around the world, we are demonstrating the benefits of regulation and quotas, and proving that businesses can be successful with sustainability at their core. As customers in emerging markets learn more about the importance of fishing in a sustainable manner, demand for conscientious producers only increases.
