Emerging from the depths of the crystal-clear waters of Iceland come the delectable Icelandic Arctic Char. This species of fish is truly unique. Why? Icelandic Arctic Char are born in freshwater before moving to saltwater as they mature, and then they spend the rest of their life migrating back and forth. The flavor and texture of the Arctic Char are often compared to a mix of both salmon and trout, with fine-flaking and medium-firm meat that varies in color from light pink to deep red. Its consistency makes Icelandic Arctic Char an ideal fish to handle in the kitchen and easy to prepare. Our Arctic Char fillets are flash-frozen using our proprietary nitrogen freezing process to immediately seal in freshness when landed.

Simple Instructions for Storing and Thawing Arctic Char
Storage: Keep frozen ≤ 0℉ (-18° C). Vacuum-sealed fish held under these conditions should retain their quality for at least 6 to 12 months. Lean white fish (halibut, cod) generally have a longer freezer life than fatty fish (salmon, tuna, sablefish). It is important to note seafood stored in frost-free freezers should be used within 3 months.
Thawing instructions: Thaw under refrigeration ≤ 38℉ (3℃). Before thawing, puncture or remove packaging. For quick-thawing, place frozen fish in cool water for approximately 20 to 30 minutes, just until contents are flexible. Once thawed, immediately cook or refrigerate (if refrigerating, puncture the package). Regardless of the chosen thawing technique, once the product is thawed, it should be cooked within 24 hours and stored at a temperature no higher than 38℉ (3℃).
