Product Description

Frosen:
fillets
whole


The redfish/ocean perch is a very popular food fish in Europe and Asia. It is very tasty and suitable for a wide variety of dishes. It therefore comes as an odd surprise how long it took Icelanders to “discover” the redfish/ocean perch as a fish worthwhile catching, processing and exporting. Its ugliness and the common belief, therefore, that it were poisonous, could be blamed for this late dawning.

 
Fish Description

The redfish/ocean perch is a tall but rather thin fish. It has got both a big head and mouth, yet its teeth are rather small. The perch’s colour ranges from dark red to orange on its back and flanks; the tone taking on lighter tones closing in on the abdominal area. It is either a demersal or mid-depth fish, and can be encountered in depths down to 500 meters or deeper. The redfish/ocean perch feeds exclusively on small fish and young fish yet, once it grows in size, capelins and herrings will be added to its list of prey.
