Share Article

FiSK Seafoodbar & Market Singapore is a new 4,000 square feet dining and retail destination that is literally swimming with new heights of experience for both diners and seafood enthusiasts! Located on the compounds of the recently opened Novotel on Stevens Road, FiSK (Norwegian for fish) Seafoodbar & Market Singapore is the brainchild of Frank Næsheim, Founder and CEO of Snorre Food, which for 30 years and counting, is one of the most respected purveyors of seafood in Singapore and Asia, specialising in distributing quality Norwegian and coldwater seafood, as well as others sourced from around the world, to major restaurants and hotels.

FiSK Seafoodbar & Market Singapore – Retail Market

Leveraging on the history as well as the expertise of its parent company and Frank Næsheim, FiSK Seafoodbar & Market Singapore combines a dining and retail experience that is unmatched in its level of consumer-focused sourcing and quality, and its ‘one-stop solution’ convenience. Imagine having expert fishmongers and an experienced culinary team all under one roof: a gastronomic restaurant and fresh seafood market rolled into one. This seamlessness is what we call ‘From Seafarer to Chef’; and it’s all within 5 minutes of the city centre.

In its interior design, FiSK Seafodbar & Market Singapore reflects the profound Norwegian connection with the sea and affinity for nature, most eloquently in the horizontal timber fins or ‘binds’ that connect both the seafoodbar and market, and in the 18-meter long seafood display and mosaic feature wall behind it, representing water fading into the sky.

FiSK Seafoodbar & Market Singapore – From Seafarer to Chef

FiSK Seafoodbar & Market Singapore is a game changer in many ways: Through Snorre Food, it brings sustainable, traceable, healthy and safe coldwater seafood directly to consumers and is a leader in the ‘Blue Revolution’ – the worldwide movement towards managed, sustainable stewardship of ocean resources. Snorre Food also works with suppliers who adhere to strict regulations on fish management and are equipped with sophisticated monitoring systems of marine species for traceability of its produce. Selected seafood is ASC (Aquaculture Stewardship Council) and MSC (Marine Stewardship Council) certified.

Amongst a variety of fresh seafood available, some of the coldwater fish are gutted and cleaned at the moment of catch then immediately frozen to seal in the freshness, flavours and nutritional benefits until time for consumption. Upon arrival in Singapore, the coldwater seafood remains at an ideal temperature (ranging from -35°C to 5°C) facilitated by Snorre Food’s optimally cold production, packing and storage rooms.

With its unprecedented variety of seasonal coldwater seafood sourced from across the world, and in particular Norwegian waters, the Market will prove a mecca for foodies, home entertainers, neighbourhood residents and chefs. There is the signature house-brand ‘Pulpit Rock’ – the first freshly smoked salmon range in Singapore with Asian flavours like Sichuan, black pepper, Thai curry and otah otah – as well as a wealth of Nordic foodstuffs such as house brand ‘Viking Water’ Belgian Blonde ale, complementary products to complete a meal, and Norwegian blue mussels exclusively imported by parent company, Snorre Food and retailed for the first time here.

Another special import is a fish called Skrei, a seasonal delicacy in Norway known for its white, firm, flaky meat and delicate flavour. Also seasonal and exclusive is Norwegian Red King Crab, coveted for its naturally sweet taste and juicy claw meat. The Market also houses tanks of live oysters of up to 3 coldwater varieties, scallops, crabs and lobsters.

FiSK Seafoodbar & Market Singapore believes that expertly gutted fish, properly frozen, can retain its flavours and nutritional value as well, or even better than often deemed ‘fresh’, not frozen, fish. It is a game-changing attitude FiSK Seafoodbar & Market hopes to propagate through the consistency and quality of its offerings, be it on the plate or at the retail counter.

FiSK Seafoodbar & Market Singapore: The Shepherds Of The Seas pioneering the Blue Revolution

The benefits of eating seafood are many: principal among these is the combination of nutrients in fish, including Omega-3 fatty acids, which promotes healthy hearts and reduces the risk of heart disease, improves brain functions and learning abilities, and maintains clear vision and strong bones. Seafood also leads to healthier pregnancies and fish are sources of lean, baby-building proteins. Plus, fish-eating promotes beauty through better skin complexion and healthier hair.

Compared to warm water species, coldwater fish have a much higher level of these nutrients and in particular Omega-3 fatty acids. Colder water naturally contains higher soluble oxygen, promoting growth and cleaner, clearer waters, such as those surrounding Norway. Norwegian seafood spends their life in these environments, where they are given time and space to grow and develop their full nutritional benefits. As a result, coldwater fish are not only packed with vitamins, Omega-3 and proteins, but grow slower than warm water species as the need to survive in a cold environment drive them to eat more and store more fat.

At FiSK Seafoodbar & Market Singapore, responsible seafood sourcing is core to their business, and together with Snorre Food, they are leading advocates of what is known as the ‘Blue Revolution.’ The Blue Revolution seeks to avoid any eco-socio consequences and ensure sustainability, largely through well-managed coldwater aquaculture that ensures traceability and source. The Norwegian fjords are ideal sites for farming facilities as the constant flow of cold, clear seawater contributes to achieving optimal growth conditions.

Norway’s tested approach of merging tradition with innovation, and its unswerving dedication to sustainability, has established its position in the market as a provider of safe and consistently high-quality seafood. All this is made possible by the experience, knowledge and expertise of researchers and marine biologists and committed fish farmers. Frank Naesheim, CEO of Snorre Food and owner of FiSK puts it this way: “When the consumer knows that he’s making a difference and feels good about the ecological benefits, that’s Saving Mother Earth.”
