From our long line of traditional Norwegian fisherman to your spoon
The Rosita family comes from a long line of Norwegian fishermen who originally went to sea in rowing boats, with experience stretching back to whaling days. We’ve spent decades fishing in the wild Norwegian waters and intend to maintain and preserve our forefathers' methods.
We use small, traditional open boats with shelter decks to sustainably catch our fish.
Many companies that produce fish liver oils import their fish livers (they may also receive livers from a variety of fish species). Yet there’s no substitute for going out and harvesting the fish. This way, we have full control over every stage of liver oil production, from line-catching the wild codfish, to choosing the most beautiful livers, capturing the oil and bottling.
We prepare our cod liver oil with raw, fresh livers of the codfish (Gadus morhua), the same species the Nordic Vikings used. Only perfectly healthy livers of a specific weight, appearance and color are selected; a skill required by seasoned fishermen.
