Blue Whiting (Micromesistius poutassou)
Blue Whiting (Micromesistius poutassou) is a small pelagic fish which is referred to Cod family that lives most of its life at 200 to 600 meters depth. Blue whiting can reach a length of 47 cm, but its usual length 20-35 cm. It is widely distributed in the North-East Atlantic and is therefore an important link in the marine food chain, feeding on plankton crustaceans and small fish and being itself prey to a wide range of predatory fish, squid and marine mammals.The most important fishing areas for blue whiting are the spawning grounds west of the British Isles – where the fishery takes place before, during and after the spawning in February-April. Annual catch of Blue whiting exceeds 1,5 million metric tonnes, most of which is processed into animal food and fish oil.

Atlantic herring (Clupea harengus)
Herring (Clupea harnegus) is referred to family clupenidae and is widely found in North Atlantic shoaling in large schools. Common size of Herring is 20-30 cm weighing 200-400 grams respectively. Herring have been salted in Europe for winter food for at least 1000 years. Disputes about access to Herring stocks started wars in medieval times and are still a problem for European Union. In 2012 commercial Herring landings totaled 1,5 million tonnes, most of which were caught in Norwegian waters. Herring is widely used for canning and salting so the fat content is critical to produce better products.
