King crab fishing takes place all year round.

Catch area

Fishing for red king crab is quota-regulated along the east coast of Finnmark, down towards the North Cape. West of the North Cape, there are no quotas, to prevent the crab from spreading further down the coast.

– Protein

Fun fact

The king crab is an introduced species in the Barents Sea and has been here for approx. 60 years. Russian scientists released the king crab in the Murmansk Fjord in the 1960s to establish a new fishing resource.

Live king crab

When a king crab arrives at one of our land-based facilities, it will be checked, weighed and placed in large vats of running fresh seawater.

The king crab must be treated well from the time it is pulled from the sea, on delivery, in reception, during sorting and when they are finally packed for live shipment.

Only the best crabs are approved for delivery as live crabs. The crab must not have a soft shell, have little meat filling or bleed on delivery.

We sort the crab according to these sizes when buying and selling:

Alive Norwegian Red Kingcrab 1.6-2.0 kg

Alive Norwegian Red Kingcrab 2.0-3.0 kg

Alive Norwegian Red Kingcrab 3.0-4.0 kg

Alive Norwegian Red Kingcrab 4 kg +
