Atlantic cod, hake, cliff fish, haddock, ling cod, nuggets, breaded fish - all names for one and the same multitasking fish: the cod. This sturdy swimmer can mainly be found around the northern hemisphere. You’ll recognize it by its olive green back with brown spots, its white belly and the long thread underneath its chin.

Our cod fishery

The Icelandic cod is known for being one of the best in the world. That’s why we at Fish Tales work with an Icelandic fishery. No worries about sustainability: Iceland is one of the most sustainable fishing countries in the world. Way back west of Iceland is the small village of Patreksfjörður, where nature is so overwhelming you don’t know where to look. The cliffs east of the village, Látrabjarg, is known for its colonies of puffins and a little further out is Bjargtangar, the most western point of Iceland and Europe. In the icy cold sea in this area you’ll find the region’s currency: the cod.
