Johan B Larsen’s fish
landing station and factory is situated in Moskenes, on the island
of Moskenesøya which is the outermost of the islands referred to as
mainland Lofoten – farthest out to sea and nearest to Værøy and
Røst. Proximity to the fishing grounds in the Vestfjord and the
Norwegian Sea is one of our major advantages, and something which
ensures that the fish we buy is always fresh. In the winter, the
Norwegian Atlantic cod come down here from the Barents Sea to spawn
in and around Lofoten, as they have for thousands of years. This
forms the basis of the world’s greatest cod fishery, the Lofoten
Fishery, which goes on right outside our door.
Moskenes is 5 km east of Å i Lofoten, which is the terminus of the
E10. There are daily ferry links between Moskenes and Bodø. Good
roads and ferry links, together with the company’s efficient
distribution channels, enable us to send fresh fish to the markets
on the very same day as it is caught, thus ensuring maximum
freshness and quality.
