The majority of the 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 fishing licenses.
Factory trawlers are large 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 meets the highest authority approved selfaudit 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.
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 freshfish vessels mainly catch cod, redfish, Greenland halibut, cold-water prawns and crabs.
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
The Polar Princess is 88 metres long and is built for fishing and processing cod, haddock, saithe, Greenland halibut, mackerel and herring.
