Norwegian Salmon

Enjoyed in more than 100 countries

Seafood From Norway still see salmon as a noble (almost aristocratic) ‘male’ fish in Norway. Years ago it wasn’t easy to come by, so salmon fish price was high and it was seen as a fish for festivals and other celebrations.

There are still festivals devoted to fishing all along our coastline. Typically in the remoter north of the country, a few hundred people will gather in the small villages on our tiny islands to celebrate the abundance of fish. They will eat together and organise games for the children and their families.
