Each winter, this cod migrates from the Barents Sea and swim all the way to the town of Ålesund at the head of the fjord, enriching us with delicious fish meat, liver, roe and tounges.
Given the extremely short distance to the fishing grounds, the fish is packed within minimal time after having been caught.
It is then loaded onto express lorries headed for the the markets, and delivered to our customers often within 24-48 hours after swimming in the sea.
Excavations at the Borgund merchant town shows that one can reliably conclude that here has been going on spring cod fishing in the bay all the way back to the Middle Ages.
This traditional fishery was of very high significance to the settlement at Ålesund and the surroundings.
The opening of the railway in Åndalsnes in 1924 made it possible to reach Oslo with a combination of boat and rail transport.
Around 1945 transport by truck directly from Ålesund to Oslo was made possible, however refrigerated trucks (termotrucks) was first possible around 1960.
Today transport is much more efficient with modern trucks and shipments every day from our packing stations.
