YouTube video: SeafoodFromNorway - Premium Norwegian Mackerel | Norwegian Mackerel has long been favored around the world for its flavorful, firm meat and high amounts of omega 3 fatty acids. It is a wild fish that is distinguished by it’s sharp and vivid “tiger stripes.” Immense care is taken to ensure Norwegian Mackerel is of the highest quality. Mackerel caught in the autumn (the premium catch period) have an abundance of healthy fat content, a distinguishing characteristic that results in a tastier, more succulent product. This is when Mackerel is at its best.

It was imported from seven countries in total, with November cumulative imports of about 28,884 tons from Norway and 721 tons from the Netherlands.China's 551 tons and Britain's 336 tons were imported.
