Ocean Prawns

Ocean Prawns A/S is a Danish fishing company with more than 40 years of fishing experience in the Arctic Ocean. We catch approx. 20,000 tons of cold-water prawns and halibut in the Artic Ocean and Barents Sea per year – which makes us one of the world's largest suppliers of MSC-labeled cold-water prawns and halibut.

The Arctic Ocean Globe prawns are caught in the crystal-clear, ice-cold Arctic Ocean, off the coasts of eastern Canada, Greenland and in the Barents Sea.
We often fish in icy waters and the sea temperature never sneaks up above 10 degrees. Due to the cold sea temperature the prawns grow slowly and that give the prawns firm, sweet and delicious meat, and a fresh taste.

From catch to final packaging in 20 minutes

The prawns are processed on board, before being sent directly to our customers around the world. At sea, the trawlers process the prawns immediately after landing their catch. The prawns are sorted, cooked, frozen and packed on board within 20 minutes and then placed into the ship’s freezer at a temperature of minus 28 degrees Celsius. The short process ensures the high quality and freshness of the seafood.

Our supply chain

When the holds of the company’s trawlers are full, a course is set for the cold stores on Newfoundland, Iceland, or Greenland. The catch is driven straight into the cold stores where the individual customer orders are made up and a final inspection takes place, carried out by independent inspection companies.

The cold-water prawns and halibut are shipped to China, Japan, Korea, the EU, and Scandinavia. All sales are handled by our sales company Ocean Seafood A/S in Northern Jutland.
