Where tradition meets innovation
The Netherlands has a long tradition as a fishing and fish processing nation. The trade in fish started as early as the Middle Ages, when it became the cornerstone of the Dutch wealth. Till this day the fleet supplies the eleven fish markets in our country daily with fresh fish.
A lot has changed though since the Middle Ages. Sustainable management of the fish stock has become of increasing importance and innovations of the fishing techniques are ongoing to preserve the environment. Maintaining the highest standards of quality is of the utmost importance. It is therefore no surprise that the Dutch fishing industry is renowned for its high quality products and the high level of innovations. An industry to be proud of!
