Market Information

MSC certification has opened up the frozen fish market for the saithe fishery, which has reduced its reliance on auctions of fresh fish, where prices vary daily, resulting in a more secure future for the fishery. Most of the fish is processed by the fishery’s processing company Kutterfisch-Zentrale in Cuxhaven that produces fillets and sells them wholesale mainly to German domestic customers but also to Belgium, the Netherlands, Luxembourg and France.
