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.

Our Icelandic Arctic Char is sourced directly from Samhrji, who utilizes a responsible land-based aquaculture facility that is 100% traceable and sustainable with green renewable energy. We selected this vendor because they create a low carbon footprint and feed non-GMO products to their fish, with no added growth hormones or antibiotics to maintain superior quality and taste.

What’s the Serving Size of Icelandic Arctic Char Fillets?
Each order of Icelandic Arctic Char comes flash-frozen in a 16-18 oz. package. We recommend serving 8 oz. of fish per person, so your fillet will be enough to feed 2 people as their main course.
The Health Benefits of Arctic Char
Seafood is widely regarded by medical experts and dieticians to be healthy, providing nutritional benefits not found in other meat sources. Icelandic Arctic Char has just 160 calories and 11 grams of fat per 3 oz. serving, while providing 16 grams of protein. Arctic Char is also an excellent source of omega-3 fatty acids, which help lower the risk of cardiovascular disease, some types of cancer, dementia, and Alzheimer’s.
Schedule Deliveries and Earn FREE Shipping
You can also schedule your seafood delivery ahead of time. At checkout, choose the date you want your food delivered and we ship overnight all orders so your products are delivered on that day. This ensures we always deliver the freshest possible seafood at your door on the day you need it.
In order to bring you a truly memorable seafood experience and keep our products as fresh as possible, all frozen items are shipped with gel packs or dry ice. Dry ice is not hazardous to food and will not contaminate it. In fact, these cooling methods, alongside our own nitrogen freezing process, help keep your seafood at ideal temperatures during shipping and ensure they taste just like they are fresh from the dock.
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℃).
