Mackerel

Mackerels eat a lot. They can eat so much, sometimes they don’t even close their mouth to eat: young mackerels swim with their mouth open through clouds of plankton and filter little animals out the water with their gills. The upside of all the eating that they do, is that their meat is tender, fatty and is filled with omega 3 fatty acids. Healthy and tasty.

Our mackerel products

Though not many things beat a freshly smoked mackerel, tinned mackerel has a gorgeous, smooth yet outspoken flavour. Great for in the pasta sauce, in a salad or your sandwich for lunch.

Our mackerel fisheries

We work closely with mackerel fisheries that are part of the North Sea mackerel fishing industry. This is because the North Sea mackerel is nice and fatty, perfect for cooking but also to smoke! You can find these mackerel fisheries in Peterhead, Scotland and Klasvík, Faroe Islands.
