Our main office is located in Bergen, but we have fishing vessels and fish farms in operation along the entire coast of Norway. Lerøy owns ten trawlers, the last of which, Kongsfjord, was delivered and put into operation in January 2020. Furthermore, Lerøy has processing facilities and receives regularly deliveries from its own trawlers and more than 600 fishing vessels.
These vessels make daily deliveries of whitefish to onshore stations, where the fish is processed and packaged, while well boats transport salmon and trout from our fish farms in North Norway, Central Norway and West Norway to sites for processing.
In addition to Lerøy's facilities for production and packaging in Norway, the Group have production and distribution in Sweden, Denmark, Finland, France, the Netherlands, Portugal, Spain and Turkey.
The fisherman-farmer, who would row to the fish market in Bergen to sell live fish at the end of the 19th century, most probably had no concept of what he was starting – a commercial enterprise that 120 years later would be serving the entire world 1.8 billion seafood meals every year.
Today, Lerøy is a world leading seafood corporation, supplying thousands of different products to retailers, restaurants, canteens and hotels worldwide.
