Characteristics

Our farmers know the best results come from mimicking the wild in every way for their fish and it is evident in the quality – outstanding color, taste and texture. Their all natural approach has been recognized with the prestigious AquaGAP certification for responsible farming practices. Since Eastern Iceland is such a remote location, Super Chilling technology is utilized to chill the fish down below freezing point of water within an hour.

Although the temperature of the fish is below freezing point of water, the fish remains fresh and unfrozen in a subzero state. This process extends the shelf life by 2-3 days so diners can enjoy a fresh from the fjord experience.
