norway king crab

Norway King Crab was established in 2007 and is today market leader within catch and supply of live King Crabs. From the start, our vision has been to deliver high-quality crabs all year round to the top level of customers worldwide.

From the very beginning, Norway King Crab has worked closely with fishermen to create regularity of catches and delivery all year round. Together with authorities, we have worked on creating good conditions for all-year catches and optimizing the crab fishing. Through this co-operation and development of our plants, we have today achieved all-year catching and delivery.

Through running R&D activities run by our Head of Research, Roman M. Vasilyev, we have achieved extremely good results when it comes to quality assurance and well-being of crabs. Today, we handle, pack and ship live King crab all over the world with very good results. We focus heavily on the brand and the story behind our product.

We wish to focus on the fisherman as the important element he is, and we want to emphasize that our activities are located in Finnmark - the northernmost county of Norway, where we have the cold and clear water, midnight sun in the summertime and 24 hours of darkness during the winter. This and the stories of the individual crabs and fishermen are made available through the story given to the customer through our QR tagging of the crabs.

Only the best crabs are approved for delivery as live crab. The selected crabs are tagged with an ID tag, which gives 100% secure trackability. A QR code or a unique seven digit number makes unique information about the crab and the fisherman available to customers. Crabs are kept in tanks for a few days to be acclimatized and then prepared for shipment.

The live crabs are then sent by plane from northern Norway to the customers, or to our tank facility in Oslo for temporary storage and further shipment. This model makes it possible for us to deliver live crabs all over the world, all year round.
