 Herring has played an important role in the history of Norway for  centuries. Our first fisheries began over a 1000 years ago and we have  been one of Europe’s biggest suppliers of herring ever since. While  times have changed – customers now prefer frozen fillets to salted and  smoked herring – the herring industry remains vital to our economy  today. In fact, the importance of this fish within our economy, combined  with its striking appearance, has earned herring the nickname ‘the  silver of the sea’.

With centuries of experience in harvesting  this silvery fish, we know that where you catch herring makes a real  difference to its taste. We’d like to share some of this knowledge with  you, so that you know what to look for and when to buy.
