Vesteraalens AS is an innovative seafood and marine ingredients company established in 1912. Known in Norway for producing the iconic canned fishballs. We supplied the famous polar explorer, Roald Amundsen, with proviants for his expeditions over one century ago.

In 2012 Vesteraalens went in a new direction. Based on sustainable harvesting of fresh marine raw materials from the arctic waters of Northern Norway, we decided to expand our business into the marine ingredients and supplement market. Today we serve customers all over the world with the highest quality Omega-3 oils. 

Vesteraalens mission is to, through an extensive network of partners, build the world leading value chain for white fish. Our cooperation stretches from tight partnership with the fishing vessels, through the receiving stations and all the way to formulation work and design of finished consumer products together with our customers.

We build our business on carefully harvesting resources from the arctic waters in our region. Being dependent on nature, we are committed to harvest in a sustainable way and utilize the potential of our resources.
