No two salmon are alike. That is why we always treat it in a unique way, with an emphasis on the highest quality.


The company Hitra Salmon Ltd. is located on Hitra Island at the Atlantic Norwegian Sea, 125 km from the city of Trondheim. This island is known as the cradle of modern industrial fish farming, which dates back to the early 1970s when the Grøntvedt brothers put 20,000 salmon smolt into a basic pen which is considered to be the first salmon farm in the World.

The Hitra Salmon brand of superior Norwegian seafood is primarily based on Atlantic salmon (Salmo salar), farmed in the clean and cold waters of the Norwegian Atlantic Ocean. Salmon of the highest quality is processed and smoked by hand according to traditional recipes. This is done by premier production methods and under the strictest hygiene standards with a continuous quality control regime. Therefore, the Hitra Salmon brand feels differently, smells differently and above all, tastes differently.

The company also processes and trades the seafood species of White fish, e.g. Atlantic Cod (Gadus morhua), and Pelagic fish, e.g. Atlantic Mackerel (Scomber scombrus), as well as live King Crab and Shellfish.
