Pelagia AS is a leading producer of pelagic fish products for human consumption, and an important supplier of essential ingredients in all kinds of fish- and animal feed; protein concentrate, fishmeal, and fish oil.
Norway Pelagic AS, Egersund Fisk AS, and Welcon Invest AS, merged in 2014 and became Pelagia. Pelagia thereof got two major divisions, Food (fish for consumption) and Feed (protein concentrate, fishmeal and fish oil), as Norway Pelagic and Egersund Fisk were leading producers of pelagic fish for consumption, and Welcon were a leading producer of protein concentrate, fish meal and oil.
