Healthy protein

Fish is a source of protein and vitamins A, B6, B12, D and E. Furthermore, fish contains important minerals such as iodine and selenium. Fatty fish is very rich in Omega 3 fatty acids.

Pelagic fish, such as mackerel, herring, blue whiting, horse mackerel and sardine are fatty fish intended for human consumption. Fatty fish has many positive effects on human health. Important markets include Nigeria, Ivory Coast, Egypt, Eastern Europe, China and Japan. In addition Cornelis Vrolijk supplies its home market in the Netherlands and the North European retail sector with fish through its own processing plants.

The North Sea is the most important wild catch area for demersal fish such as plaice, sole, gurnard, mullet and squid. The North Sea is one of the most productive and, indeed, one of the cleanest seas in the world. Our demersal trawlers allow us to supply consumers all over Europe with fresh fish. The fish is delivered and sold through the auction in Scheveningen. From restaurants and fishmongers in The Hague and Zuid-Holland to traders who export the fish to South Europe.
