Cheap Fish'n'Chips Thanks To Norway!

Norway Fish

9:24am 17th May 2014

A Weymouth Chippy's selling Fish and Chips from 99 pence today to celebrate Norway Day.

King Edward's Fish and Chips are one of 99 outlets around the country to get a share of 16 metric tonnes of cod from the Norwegian Seafood Council.

Les Young, owner of King Edward's Fish & Chips comments, "We are so pleased to be taking part in this annual celebration. Fish and chips are a firm favourite in Weymouth; I know that our customers will enjoy the delicious takeaway Norwegian cod and chips on offer - and they will certainly enjoy the prices too!"
 
99p fish and chips are being served by chippies in commemoration of the 200th Anniversary of the Norwegian constitution.
 
Norwegian cod is a popular choice for British chippies due to its firm flesh and flaky texture, its light, delicate flavour, versatility and good quality. Fish and chip lovers can also enjoy this delicious fish supper with a clear conscious as the sustainability of Norwegian cod stocks are carefully managed in order to safe guard the fish for generations to come. This means that Norwegian cod is in plentiful supply, so much so that the vast majority of cod sold by fish and chip shops in the UK is caught in the icy, clear Arctic waters of the Barents Sea off the northern Norwegian coast.  

Jack-Robert Møller, UK Director for the NSC, comments: "Norway has provided UK fish and chips shops with delicious cod from the icy Barents Sea for nearly 70 years now. We are so pleased that due to the abundance of sustainable cod in Norway, that we are able to give the gift of this fish to Dorset in celebration of our historic Norway Day."
