"WHEN THE WIND IS BLOWING FROM THE NORTH BETWEEN THE ALPS, FISHING ON THE LYNGENFJORD IS A REFRESHING EXPERIENCE. NEVERTHELESS, WE HAVE FISHED SHRIMPS HERE SINCE 1950. THAT’S BECAUSE WE KNOW THAT THE COLD AND CLEAR WATERS GIVE THE SHRIMPS FROM LYNGEN A QUALITY AND TASTE THAT’S COMPLETELY UNIQUE. CONSEQUENTLY, WE WILL CONTINUE WITH THIS EVEN IF THE NORTHERLY WIND TURNS THE FJORD WHITE ONCE IN A WHILE BECAUSE WE THINK THESE SHRIMPS ARE WOTH THE TROUBLE." - Lyngen Reker AS

It’s no coincidence that the family-run company is located at Lenangsøyra on the shores of the Lyngenfjord because this is precisely where the best shrimps are found. The local fishing boats call daily to deliver fresh shrimps, weather and wind permitting.Lyngen Reker AS believes that people deserve to get the best shrimps and that it is their job to ensure that this occurs.
Northerly wind and Arctic climate
The climate and nature in the Lyngenfjord provide the perfect conditions for the shrimp fishermen to deliver shrimps of the finest quality.
The northerly wind and Arctic climate lead to the cold water that makes the shrimp grow slowly and develop a taste that is sweet with a hint of salt, which is a distinctive quality for shrimps from Northern Norway.
The distinctive characteristics of good quality fresh unpeeled shrimps are the fresh sea breeze smell and that they are aesthetically appealing.
Extremely popular product
You can buy Lyngenfjord shrimps in a variety of ways: unpeeled (on the shell), hand-peeled, machine-peeled or raw.
The local shrimps from the Lyngenfjord are popular in Norway and abroad. However, we recommend that you buy fresh Lyngen shrimps from a local supermarket in the Lyngenfjord region.
We recommend serving the shrimps on freshly baked bread with a few drops of lemon, spring onion, mayonnaise and some freshly ground. Bon appetite!
