We work directly with sustainable fisheries in Iceland that catch and process fish to our order. There are no middlemen between us and the fish. This allows us to get the freshest fish available in the fastest time possible! Even the "big guys" call us to source Icelandic fish for their menus! When you buy from us, you are buying from the source!
Check out the date printed on the back of each package! This is our recommended "Enjoy or freeze by" date. This date will vary based on type of fish and when it was packed in Iceland. We guarantee that you receive product super fresh with every shipment!
Yes! Our airtight seal will actually help to protect the fish in the freezer for up to 6 months! If you know that you will not get to enjoy our products before the date printed on the back, then the sooner you freeze it, the better! Keep in mind, the best way to defrost fish is SLOWLY (like overnight in the refrigerator!)
NO! Such a common misconception. Unlike other parts of the World... All of our products are sashimi-grade and come from the cleanest waters in the world, Iceland! Plus, the Arctic is super cold. That means no parasites can grow on our fish. That's why NO ANTIBIOTICS are ever needed, and you can just open up a pack and enjoy it raw! 😉
We want to be sure that we can supply you with a consistent supply of fresh fish every week. So we carefully select the types of fish that are readily available to us all year-round. We are always looking to expand our line of products! Be sure to sign up to our weekly newsletter to be first to know about new products and exclusive discounts!
These types of species are uncommon in Iceland and are usually only commercially-available frozen! We work with distribution partners in Iceland who do offer frozen products, but we do not intend on making these products available for sale under the Nordic Catch brand.
Yes we do! We sell bulk cases to various distributors, markets, and restaurants all around Los Angeles! You never know, you may be at a restaurant enjoying our own fish, without ever knowing it! For more information, or to source our products wholesale, reach out to us at firstname.lastname@example.org!
We want to be sure our fish is packaged tightly to really lock in that freshness! After slicing off the black ribbon with a knife or scissors, check out the bottom-left corner of the pack! This part is intentionally unsealed, leaving a flap to pull for easy opening!
Yes! The most sustainable in the world!
Iceland was the first country to introduce the Individual Transferrable Quota (ITQ) system, and it is still enforced to this day!
Strict quotas, renewable resources, and endless glacier water supplies are all facts about Iceland. This means that no species will ever become endangered, and all farm sites use renewable energy and fresh glacier water throughout! There's a reason Iceland is always rated high among the "Greenest Countries" in the world!
Not in Iceland! Fish farms in Iceland are strategically located in the Fjords around Iceland (in the ocean!). These are pockets between land where fresh glacier water runs into the ocean. That means farm sites have a constant flow of clean, cold, glacier water running through them. It is like natural filtration. This is why no antibiotics are ever used, and no energy is needed to constantly pump clean water through! The feed is completely natural ingredients, mimicking the same diet that fish would find in nature. It's as close to wild as you can get all year-round, WITHOUT freezing!
No foam here! We deliver all of our products in insulated boxes that use sustainable cotton liners! This cotton insulation can be discarded in the trash and will break down in about a year, going back into nature, just like where it started! As for the gel paks we use, go ahead and reuse them dozens of times! They will hold up for a long time before they need to be discarded!
We source all of our products from fisheries that are certified by the biggest organizations in the world! Such as, Marine Stewardship Council, Aquaculture Stewardship Council, and Iceland Responsible Fisheries!
