– The treasures of the Northeast Atlantic

Whiter, firmer, better. That is what characterizes the premium products from our longliner Leinebris.

Leinebris is designed with the very best equipment and technology to ensure that the fish is treated in the best possible way from it’s caught alive until it’s frozen on board within three hours.

In the top modern factory we produce:

  • – Headed and gutted fish (Frozen in blocks of random or fixed weight and packed in delicate white paper bags.)
  • – Supreme fillets (Shatter packed or IQF in exclusive black boxes.)

All our Cod and Haddock from the Barents Sea is MSC certified. We also catch Greenland Halibut, Atlantic White Halibut, Catfish, Tusk and Ling with hook and line. During the winter season we catch Saithe, Pollack and Hake while hauling the gillnet through the moonpool in the center of our vessel.


Leinebris is a Norwegian family company which owns and operates one of the world’s most modern longliner.

All year round we catch quality wild fish in the cold and clear Northeast Atlantic.

We are passionate about longline fishery and the fresh frozen at sea (FAS) concept that ensures a quality and consistency of the absolute highest standard.

As fifth generation fishermen our heritage goes back to 1898. Today we use our first hand
knowledge to serve customers all around the world with premium longline fish.


Fishing has been a fundamental part of the Leinebø family for generations. The contrasts are enormous from the first wooden vessel built in 1898 to the top modern longliner, Leinebris.

Leinebris is designed with the very best equipment, technology and facilities to ensure that the fish is treated in the best possible way from it’s caught alive until it’s frozen on board within three hours later.


As always, our focus will be on sustainability and quality when we launch the new Leinebris in 2025. With the most innovative and green solutions we will meet the sustainable development goals set by the United Nations by 2030.

The new Leinebris will be equipped with a large battery system and three generating sets for diesel-electric propulsion. It is also likely to be the world’s first vessel that combines autoline, danish seine and gillnet. This will give the vessel the opportunity to select the fishing method that leaves the lowest carbon footprint and best catching efficiency.

Fresh frozen at sea

Unique quality, whiter than snow, firm texture, fresher than fresh.
This is how we can describe the fish from the Norwegian longliners.


When catching by longline the fish is brought on board alive, one by one.
Directly after catching the production process starts and within three hours the fish is frozen to -18 degrees.
This quick freezing process locks in the quality and goodness of the fish, which ensures a quality of the absolute highest standard.

Longline fishing is an environmentally friendly and sustainable catching method.

Seafood is our heritage and it’s our future. As healthy oceans are essential to our existence it’s our job to conserve and sustainably use the oceans, together with the United Nations and their sustainable development goals.

In years to come we will play our part in serving a growing world population with fish from cold, nutrient-rich Norwegian waters. We will do our best to preserve our precious fishing grounds for now and for the future.

We also hope we can play a part in encouraging people to choose environmentally friendly seafood.
