What is Skrei Cod?

 

Skrei is a type of Norwegian Cod, in season from January to April each year. Skrei is pronounced ‘Sk-rey’ and the meaning of ‘Skrei’ is ‘to migrate’. At the beginning of every year, millions of large, mature Cod – at approximately 5 years old, make the journey from the Barents Sea back to their their spawning grounds. Skrei Cod is MSC certified, the meat is lean, and it has a delicate, fresh, clean taste.
