what makes us different?
You can feel proud to announce that the crab you're selling in your store, or the one you're about to introduce to your restaurant visitors is coming straight from the largest and most advanced crab vessel in the seven seas.
Unlike any other, Tromsbas was recently renovated and re-purposed with the sole intention of catching and processing opilio snow crab in the roughest oceans.
This investment cost more than USD 20.000.000 - and was repurposed for the 'lonely' intention of providing the rest of the world with the best snow crab there is while maintaining sustainable fishing and new approaches for safekeeping of the ecosystem.
Which should enforce our belief - what we believe to be a new era in snow crab fishing, in the Barent sea.
why it matters..
appreciated in taste and proportions
With the equipment Tromsbas is invested with, we can quickly sort out the crab to meet specific requirements.
This in combination with the large quanta of available crab in the ocean, paired with the opposite effect of a low-allowed quota for fishing.
Allows us to only fish for specific measurements and other quality important factors such as meat fill %, top-grade clusters 10-16oz / 300-450 gram which yields high meat to shell weight at 40%+
