Knowledge about CO2e Emissions in Fish

In order to minimize CO2e emissions, measuring emissions is vital. Therefore, efforts are made to calculate the emissions associated with the fish purchases. The aim is to gain an overview of which aspects of the business contribute the most emissions, enabling the identification of more sustainable alternatives.


In 2022, a comprehensive calculation of the entire fish procurement was conducted, attributing emissions that are deemed the most accurate and representative. The emissions primarily focus on the fishing method and the emissions occurring during the capture of the fish in the form of CO2e. To provide a more holistic view, an additional filter considers the fishing method, and emissions from inbound transport and outbound distribution are factored in.

The intention is to share these emissions, and for those interested in understanding their own emissions from fish purchases at Fiskerikajen, reaching out to your contact person at Fiskerikajen is encouraged. Further details on options are available upon inquiry.

For more in-depth information on emissions, the latest Sustainability report provides additional insights.

Emissions focus primarily on the method of capture and on the emissions that have occurred while the fish have been caught in the form of CO2e.

In order to better form a picture of the total footprint, we add an additional filter which is the capture method and finally we take the emissions from our inbound transport and outbound distribution.

We would like to share our emissions and if you are interested in being informed about the emissions you have had in your fish purchase from Fiskerikajen, this is also an option.

Contact your regular contact if you would like to hear more about your options.
