Premium Saba Mackerel Fillet
Saba Mackerel is a fast-swimming fish. In the summer it appears in large coastal shoals as well as in the Skagerrak, the North Sea and the South Norwegian Sea.
For Norwegian mackerel, the premium catch period is September to November when the Mackerel swims from the feeding areas in The Norwegian Sea and back to the spawning areas. This is when the fat content is the highest, making the mackerel especially tasty and packed with healthy EPA, DHA and other omega-3 fatty acids. This explains the international popularity of Norwegian mackerel, which is caught when the fish is of the highest quality.
Norway mainly uses purse seine when fishing for mackerel. This distinguishes Norway from other exporters and contributes to the high quality of mackerel from Norway. Trolling line is also used along the coast and pelagic trawl at sea.
Mackerel is especially rich in:
• Protein that builds and maintains every cell in the body
• Omega-3 fatty acids that prevent and reduce the development of cardiovascular diseases, and which are important building blocks in the brain
• Vitamin D, which is necessary to get the right balance of calcium in the body to maintain and strengthen the bones
• Selenium, an important element in an enzyme that fights harmful chemical processes in the body
