Skrei, as Norway’s migratory cod is known, has reached the shores of Northern Norway after its epic 1,000km journey from the depths of the icy Barents Sea. This journey is what gives these cod the viking name skrei, which means “traveller”.

By the time it arrives in Norway, skrei is at its best, with succulent white flesh, wonderful texture, and a delicate flavour. It is eagerly awaited by chefs right across Europe, who understand this is some of the finest fish in the world.

Norwegian skrei is not just the preserve of chefs in the elaborate dishes of fancy restaurants, any home cook is guaranteed to succeed with skrei, and there is a range of tempting recipes available. Find recipes here.

Norwegian Seafood Council

A healthy start to 2022

Skrei is tasty and versatile, and has great nutritional value: a portion provides the recommended daily amount of omega-3, as well as vitamins A and B12, which are linked to a strong immune system as well as good brain and reproductive health. Skrei contains selenium and iodine, and is also a low-calorie, high protein choice.

All this means that including skrei in the diet is of great benefit to all health-conscious home cooks and consumers.

You can also be confident that, when you choose Norwegian skrei, you are making a good choice for the planet as well as your health: the Barents Sea cod stock is one of the largest in the world, and the fishery is considered to be one of the most sustainable.

Fish is not only an integral part of Norway’s heritage, it is a vital element of the future too, which is why Norwegian seafood is about trust: trust in quality, and trust in sustainability.

The arrival of our special cod is also supported by the Norwegian Seafood Council’s promotional activities for in several European markets, such as France, Spain, Germany and Sweden.
