The brand name association VARANGER was established in 2004 by ten dedicated seafood producers in the county of Finnmark, northern Norway. The purpose of the association was to develop a new Norwegian King Crab industry.
Our starting point was the unique Barents Sea with its pure, ice-cold water and the close proximity of the coastal fishing fleet to the fishery banks.
This was the beginning of the process to build a regional brand name for seafood from the county of Finnmark. As of today, we count thirteen members from the seafood producers, equipment providers and educational institutions in the county.
