Pelagia A/S is a leading producer of pelagic fish products for human consumption and an important supplier of essential ingredients for all types of fish and animal feed, protein concentrate, fishmeal, and fish oil. Through their company Epax, Pelagia is a leading global producer of concentrated marine-based omega-3 fatty acids for dietary supplements and pharmaceutical preparations.
Pelagia operates 28 branches in Norway, the United Kingdom, Ireland, Denmark, and Ukraine. 25 are 100% owned, while three are partly owned partner companies, and the operation is divided into three departments: Food (consumption), feed (protein concentrate, fishmeal, and fish oil) and health (dietary supplements and pharmaceutical preparations).
The Food Division exports nearly 100% of its products, while Feed’s products are mainly sold on the domestic market as essential ingredients in fish and animal feed production. It can therefore be said that almost 100% of the wild pelagic fish is used and ends up at a table at some point, either directly or indirectly.
