The fleet

The majority of raw material used for our product range is supplied by our own vessels. The vessels fish in Greenlandic waters as well as other parts of the world, all operating under Polar Seafood’s fish licenses.

Factory trawlers

Factory trawlers are big vessels, operated by up to 35 people, and able to process the fish right from catch to a “ready to eat” finished product. The seafood processed onboard the trawler meet the highest authority approved self audit standards for hygiene and quality. All products are frozen and stored onboard until the vessel arrives at port.

Polar Seafood’s trawlers are built and equipped to operate world-wide and are mainly fishing for cold water prawns, cod, saithe, haddock, Greenland halibut and redfish.


Fresh fish vessels

From time of catch until the vessel arrives at port, the fish is kept well iced to ensure the very best quality when delivered to Polar Seafood’s land based factories. At each factory, the laboratory team checks the intake again, making sure that the raw material is still of the highest standard before processing.

 Our fresh fish vessels mainly catch cod, redfish, Greenland halibut, cold water prawns and crab.

The majority of Polar Seafood’s fish and shellfish is landed using our state of the art fleet of large trawlers, built specifically for fishing in the unpolluted Arctic Ocean
