Sold Out!



Each year the herring have the same cycle. In the winter months it is thin and spring herring starts growing with the presence of plankton in the water. Under favorable conditions, a herring in the spring every day 2 percent fatter food. A quarter of its weight could eventually consist of fat. In May, when the herring has reached a fat content of at least 16 percent, begins the annual period when we fish for herring, which usually lasts until July. New Dutch herring may be called that if it contains at least 16 percent fat, and gutted the traditional Dutch way, salted and filleted.


Herring, Salt.
