From the coldest waters, during the darkest nights of the year, emerges an exceptionally light and delicate wild-caught fish. But the journey from sea to table is not one to be taken lightly. Skrei is a true wonder of nature and a culinary delicacy unlike any other. This extra-premium wild Norwegian cod in its prime must meet strict quality standards to be considered Skrei. "Skrei" comes from the old Norse for "Wanderer"

Each January a miraculous event occurs. After years spent growing strong in the feeding grounds of the Barents Sea, Norwegian cod in their prime head southward, returning to their Lofoten Islands spawning grounds in northern Norway in search of a mate. It´s a journey from the top of the world that transforms Norwegian cod into Skrei.

Swimming thousands of miles, this arduous journey strengthens the sleek fish, creating a long, extra-lean and incredibly delicate fillet. Sought after for its superior flavor and flaky meat, Skrei is a prize of the sea and a source of pride for a nation. It´s a catch so special that it drives Norway’s fishermen to the sea in droves-willing to risk it all-year after year.

During these longest, coldest nights of the Norwegian winter, a determined fleet of Norwegian fishermen sets sail to brave the unforgiving currents and pounding waves of the Barents Sea. Just as generations have for hundreds of years before them, Norwegian fishermen take to the sea each night under cover of darkness in search of an exquisite catch-one worthy of the Skrei label.

Passionate about their catch, the fishermen treat Skrei with incredible respect, taking extra care to maintain its immaculate, artisanal quality, and ensuring only the finest Skrei reach your table.
