For thousand of years, the people at Stad have been living off fishing and seeking opportunities from the natural environment and the ocean. With Stad as its location and starting point, Ervik Havfiske has grown to be one of Norway’s largest longline companies. The yearly catch is more than 20 000 tons of high-quality seafood products, mainly headed and gutted fish, but also valuated consumer-ready products.
Ervik Havfiske is proactively leading the way in the eco-labeling of fisheries. Both cod and haddock from the Barents Sea and Patagonian toothfish from the Antarctic are certified by MSC (Maine Stewardship Council). The company is also a certified pursuant to the Swedish KRAV label for Norwegian cod and haddock.
