Norway is home to the world’s largest cod stock. Because it is one of the most common fish in Norway, it has provided a foundation for human habitation along the shore. There are two types of cod: migratory, oceanic fish and non-migratory coastal cod. The migratory cod is only available for a limited time each year and is known as “Skrei” in Norwegian, which translates to “the wanderer.” The term is derived from its epic swim over Arctic waters. This makes it a pelagic fish. The coastal cod, on the other hand, is a bottom-dwelling fish.
Cod fishing is done all year, and there is a wide variety of products available. The major items are fresh, frozen, and fillets, although cod is also available in numerous dried variants. Cod is low in fat and high in protein, vitamin B12, and selenium.
