Lumpfish are harvested from the clean, cold North Atlantic Ocean by inshore vessels less than 35′. Our fishers extract the roe (egg) sacs from the larger female and release the smaller male lumpfish. The roe is placed in food approved containers and indirectly iced to quickly lower the storage temperature.
The roe is processed, cleaned and mixed with salt and brine in 105 kg plastic barrels. The product is exported to Denmark, Iceland and Sweden where it is processed into high quality lumpfish caviar. Fogo brand pickled lumpfish roe is produced to specification and has an excellent quality reputation. The product is semi-preserved and has an extended refrigerated shelf life.
