Russian long-line fishery of Pacific cod and halibut in the Western Bering Sea was successfully certified to MSC Fishery Standard on the 8th of October 2019. The MSC certificate holder is Long-Line Fishery Association (the LFA). Our company YAMSy responsible for long-line fishery in the Russian Far East fishery region is a founder and party of the LFA.

The full assessment was performed by Russian certification assurance body (CAB) Marine Certification based in Moscow. In addition, the process was supported by Russian Federal Agency for Fisheries,Russian fishery research institutions and the Fishery monitoring centre.

The MSC certification covers three Russian management areas in the Western Bering Sea: Petropavlovsk-Komandorskaya area,Karaginskaya area and West Bering sea area.

The successful certification of the fishery to the MSC Fishery Standard is a robust assurance that the stocks, fishery management and the fishery comply with high international sustainable fishery standard, which will support the position of Norebo as a Russian supplier of fishery products in major international markets.

All cod and halibut captured in the above management areas after the 1st of August 2019 subject to requirement for Under Assessment products can be now sold as MSC certified products and bear MSC label.

The MSC certificate and Public Certification Report are available at the MSC website in Track Fishery.

The total number of new factory vessels being built for Norebo has increased to 10.

Norebo and St Petersburg’s Northern Shipyard signed a contract to build further four factory trawlers for the Far East companies of Norebo Holding: Akros AO, Blaf AO, Roliz OOO, Sakhalin Leasing Fleet AO. Each vessel costs over 4 billion roubles (about $60 million). The order should be complete between 2020 and 2023.

The state-of-the-art multi functional factory on board of the new vessels will provide waste-free production and advanced processing of fish at sea. Among the products produced by factory-trawlers are chilled fish fillet, mince, caviar,fish meal and liver.

Alexander Isakov, head of Far Eastern companies of Norebo Holding, stated that “the trawlers will be harvesting Alaska pollock and herring in the Bering Sea and the Sea of Okhotsk”. He highlighted the fact that since 2017 Norebo has been implementing a fleet renovation project. “A modern fleet is a requirement of our times. Only the new vessels with hi-tech equipment can offer optimal catch processing, as well as high standards of safety and comfort for the crew” – stressed Mr. Isakov.

Earlier in the year 2017 Northern Shipyard and Norebo contracted construction of six trawlers based on the same design (design created by Icelandic design firm Nautic). The aforementioned six trawlers will be harvesting cod and haddock in the North Atlantic Ocean.

Main characteristics of the new trawlers:

Length – 81.6 m

Width – 16 m

Speed – 15 knots

Tonnage - 5,500 tons

Main engine output – 6.2 MWth

Overall production capacity – 150 tons of fish per day

Freezing capacity – 100 tons of fish per day

Crew – 80 people

Norebo Europe sales team attended the annual Fish &Chips Awards 2019. The Awards, also known as the ‘Oscars’ of the industry, took place in Lancaster Hotel in London on the 24th January. The biggest industry players gathered together for the 31st time since 1988 to celebrate people and businesses across the UK that work hard to offer us the best fish & chips.

Some interesting statistics from the Awards organisers demonstrates that fish & chips businesses are on the rise: “independent fish and chip shops remain the largest outlet for fish and chip meals in the UK, with 109 million servings in the year to September 2018; taking a 54% share of all fish and chip servings in the GB food service sector. In the year to September 2018, total fish and chip servings across the whole of food service totaled 201 million, up +13.5% from 2009 and up +5.7% from the previous year”.

So, it is no surprise that a great number of fish &chips shops across the UK entered the competition this year. A few key performance elements, such as sustainable sourcing, quality, menu innovation and diversification, customer service, staff training processes along with marketing techniques and capabilities are assessed and reviewed by the judges.  

Fish and Chip Shop of the Year Award went to Krispies from Exmouth in Devon. Congratulations from Norebo! To see the full list of winning businesses and individuals in the various award categories of the 2019 awards please click here.

The origins of fish and chips as a dish remain a mystery.Most likely we owe fried potato chip recipe to the French or the Belgians. We are almost certain that it was the Jews who introduced fried fish in the 17th century. Fish and chips were long sold separately until 1860 when a Jewish immigrant called Joseph Malin came up with the idea of marrying the two and selling fish & chips dish in his East End London shop. However, some food historians argue that there is no clear winner as this fact about Joseph Malin can be contested. During the reign of Queen Victoria fish and chips gained huge popularity and it was sold as street food. So much so that in 1839 Charles Dickens mentioned a “fried fish warehouse” in his novel Oliver Twist.

Fish and chips remain one of the UK’s favourite takeaways,since fish and mushy peas make it a healthier option than many other takeaway choices. Tradition prevails, and most Brits still prefer to enjoy their fish and chips the old-fashioned way with plenty of salt, vinegar and mushy peas.However, preferences do vary depending on where people live: curry sauce in Birmingham, tomato ketchup in Newcastle, gravy in Manchester and salt ‘n’ sauce in Edinburgh.

Keel is Laid for New Norebo Trawler in Leading Russian Shipyard

The keel was laid this week at St Petersburg’s Northern Shipyard for a new state-of-the-art factory trawler for Norebo, one of Russia’s largest companies involved in the harvesting, processing and transportation of fish.  This important occasion was attended by officials and guests from the Federal Agency for Fisheries, the Government of St. Petersburg and Murmansk region, and the Russian Maritime Register of Shipping.  Also present were representatives of other Russian shipyards, the senior management of Norebo and of other companies. 

The vessel is named Captain Sokolov in honour of Vladimir Sokolov (1954-2015) who graduated from the Murmansk Maritime Academy before joining the Murmansk Trawl Fleet.  His professional career led him from seaman, to the master of fishing vessels, and later a head of Murmansk Fishing Port. He also worked as a deputy head of the Federal Agency for Fisheries.

It will take roughly two years to complete the Captain Sokolov, the first of six vessels to be built in St Petersburg under this contract.  The five trawlers which follow will be built faster and will be delivered before 2022 to Norebo’s fishing companies in the Northwest Russia Karat-1 JSC, Alternative JSC, Karelian Seafood JSC and Murmansk Region Fleet JSC.

The design of the new trawler is based on project 170701 developed by Icelandic design company Nautic, one of the Knarr Maritime companies, and adapted to the requirements of the Russian Maritime Register of Shipping by the St. Petersburg-based Nautic-Rus design department. 

The new trawler will have a capsule-type hull of 81.6 meters in length and 16 meters in width. 

The fish processing plant will provide an overall production capacity of 150 metric tons per day, including more than 21 metric tons of a wide variety of cod and haddock fillets, and around seven metric tons of fishmeal per day. 

The freezing equipment will have capacity of more than 60 metric tons of product per day and the cold storage capacity will provide storage of up to 1,200 metric tons of frozen fish products or combined storage of 1,020 metric tons of fish products and 334 metric tons of fishmeal. Besides the vessel will be able to produce and store up to 97 metric tons of canned fishery products (cod liver etc.). 

Ilya Shestakov, the head of the Federal Agency for Fisheries, said when opening the ceremony: “We will start building of 40 fishing vessels in two years in Russia. It is a breakthrough of our country but this vessel is special for us as it is named in honour of our friend and our teacher Vladimir Sokolov”. 

Vitaly Orlov, Norebo’s director said that laying of the keel for this first vessel is a great event for the company and the country. “Although Norebo’s current fishing fleet is up-to-date, the time to renew is coming. We spent a great deal of time and effort in choosing both the design of the vessel and the shipyard. Today is a very emotional moment when we lay the keel of the first vessel. I hope that this event today will give a positive signal to the shipbuilding industry that Russia intends to build vessels that are as good as,or even better, than shipyards anywhere in the world.  Norebo, a large Russian company, intends to support Russian shipbuilding.  We also want to continue a good tradition to call the vessels after the people who made a great contribution into development of the fishing industry in Russia as Vladimir Sokolov used to be”. 

Vladimir Grigoryev, the CEO of Rybprominvest said: “We’ve set goal to make an ambitious and unique project and I’m sure we will succeed. Everything captured by this vessel at sea will be processed. This is an innovative project. We’ve analysed all recently developed technologies within fishing industry in the world and decided to use them in this vessel. For instance, the vessel will be able to operate three trawl gears, it will have a large fish processing factory producing a great variety of fishery products”. 

The trawlers will be built under the supervision of the Russian Maritime Register of Shipping. Mikhail Kuteev, the director of the Baltic Branch of the Register explained: “Today's trawlers are high-tech vessels equipped with complex equipment. Project 170701 is an excellent example of an innovative approach to ship design. The designers created a brand-new architecture. Due to the capsule-type bow outline and a unique construction of haul the trawler will have improved seagoing capacities and increased working area”. 

Igor Ponomarev, the CEO of the Northern Shipyard assured that “this vessel will be built on time in accordance with the timeline and obligations of the shipyard”. He added that the Northern Shipyard systematically increases the share civil vessel projects: “In 2020 our capacity utilization for civil projects will exceed 40%. This year we laid keels for three fishing vessels. Next year we plan to start building four fishing vessels. In the coming years we plan to build nine vessels under two projects and we hope that the number of orders will increase. This development became possible after the Government adopted a number of crucial regulations aimed at support of Russian companies and we welcome such changes”. 

Today Norebo owns 45 vessels operating in Atlantic and Pacific oceans. Last year Norebo signed contracts with the Northern Shipyard for building of six factory trawlers to be used in North Atlantic and now consider to increase the order with 3-4 vessels that will renew Norebo’s fleet in the Russian Far East region. The commissioning of new trawlers will increase economic and production efficiency of Norebo and will increase supply of more value-added products such as fillets, mince, fishmeal and other products delivered both to Russia and foreign markets. Besides new vessels will be more economical,safe and comfortable for the crew.

Russia and Norway Agreed on 2019 Quotas for Joint Stocks

Russia and Norway had talks in the Joint Russian-Norwegian Fisheries Commission on 15-18 October 2018 in Ålesund (Norway) and agreed on TACs for jointly managed stocks in 2019.

The parties of the commission agreed that the stock of NEA cod is in good condition and set the TAC in 2019 at the level 725 000 MT, which is 6.5% less than in 2018 (775 000 MT). This level of the cod TAC is still within the limits of precautionary and sustainable management.

The TAC of NEA haddock Russia and Norway agreed at the level of 172 000 MT, which is 15% less than in 2018(202 305 MT).

Considering the state of the Barents Sea capelin stock and its importance for the marine ecosystem, Russia and Norway agreed to cease commercial fishery of this species in 2019. In 2018 the joint TAC for Russian and Norway was only at the level of 205 000 MT. Having known the predicted decline in the stocks of cod and haddock in the coming years such measure will smoothen the negative dynamics in other commercially important stocks.

The TAC of Greenland halibut in 2019 was set at 27 000 MT, which is the same level as in 2018.

The TAC of redfish (Sebastes mentella) in 2019 was set at the level of 53 757 MT, which is 64.6% higher than in 2018 (32 658 MT). Last time the catch of redfish (Sebastes mentella) was at this level in 1985.

The parties of the commission also noted that garbage in marine ecosystem has become a global challenge and a growing problem in the Barents Sea. Russian and Norway agreed to work for preventing garbage pollution in the marine environment related to fishing activities in this region.

Russian and Norway also agreed a joint research programme in 2019, which will allow collecting scientific data that shall be used for assessment of the commercial stocks and marine ecosystem in the Barents Sea and the Norwegian Sea.

Norebo makes an entry into Russia’s Northern shrimp (Pandalus borealis) fishery.

Norebo penetrates Russia’s rapidly growing Northern shrimp (Pandalus borealis) market. In the last 5 years there is a stable growth of Russia’s shrimp fishery, annual growth is estimated 12% to 29%.

The company was proud to exhibit the Northern shrimp under its borealis brand at the WorldFood Moscow trade show in September 2018. Norebo’s representative Mr. Sennikov commented on the recent development: “It will be cooked, shell-on shrimp. Russia will be the main market, initially. The product is well known and for us, it’s an advantage to expand the products we offer. Shrimp is a very natural expansion of our assortment”.

For now, Norebo has just recently started to harvest Northern shrimp with one vessel, but more may be added next year.

Exporting the product is the opportunity that Norebo is eager to explore, subject to obtaining EU export approval. MSC certification for shrimp fishery is another goal set by Norebo. Norebo stresses the fact that timing is crucial for obtaining MSC certification, as “we need to understand if the fishery is ready”.

Russian Northern shrimp fishery in the Barents Sea is subject to pre-assessment now and Norebo plans to join the group of Russian harvesters for full assessment of this fishery to MSC fishery standard.

Press Release

Norebo brings its sales and marketing companies under a single corporate identity and rebrands all of its products

The companies known as Ocean Trawlers Europe Limited and Ocean Trawlers Hong Kong Limited have been renamed Norebo Europe Limited and Norebo Hong Kong Limited in order to bring them in line with their parent company’s name, Norebo.  The business’ frozen-at-sea harvesting products will also now be sold under new names; the products previously sold under the brand name “Ocean Trawlers” will now be sold under the name “Ocean Spirit” and the products previously sold under the name “Atlantika” will now be sold under the brand name “Glacialis”.

Norebo’s managing director for all export markets, Stephen Collyer, explains: “Norebo is a global business and we want our branding to reflect this - after all, our international supply chain now serves five continents and over 20 countries.  Given transparency is so crucial in today’s business world it’s important we are able to communicate a single, global brand both internally and externally.

“We want to make it clear that all the business units within Norebo share the same mission and values, regardless of where they are operating in the world.  Streamlining the corporate identity plays to this.”

We have also changed the branding of our products to reflect how each of them has evolved:

  • Our premium quality wild, fresh, frozen at sea fish (supplied to chefs, restaurants and fish and chip shops) which was previously sold under the name “Atlantika” will now be sold under the name Glacialis.  This reflects the fact harvesting has extended into new fishing grounds covering both the North Atlantic and North Pacific oceans.  Under the Glacialis brand we will sell our Alaska pollock and Pacific cod alongside our long-standing Atlantic cod, haddock and saithe.
  • Our whole frozen fish products and industrial blocks (sold to industries and distributors), will no longer be sold under the brand name “Ocean Trawlers”; instead, these will be sold under the name “Ocean Spirit”.  The Ocean Spirit name communicates our now broader offer, which for example now includes line-caught fish.  The new name and logo express the wild and epic nature of the seas.  

Stephen Collyer continues: “We’re hugely proud of everything Norebo has achieved over the past 20 years.  We want our staff, our partners and our customers to recognise the size of the business and its heritage as being indicative of our long-standing reputation for quality and reliability.

“Each of the new Norebo brands, Ocean Spirit and Glacialis, stands at the forefront of innovation in the sector, both in terms of our products and sustainable harvesting methods.  We want our branding to reflect the company’s positive outlook for the future of sustainable fisheries.  We take our responsibility as stewards of the oceans seriously and want to ensure wild-caught fish remains a viable food source for generations to come.”

Norebo has now begun to introduce its new packaging and this will come into broader circulation over the course of the coming months.  While the brands and design of the boxes themselves has changed, the products inside have not.  Norebo continues to provide a premium and reliable service, offering fresh-frozen wild caught fish that are fully traceable to the vessel from which they were caught.
