Koreans go wild for mackerel
THE Norwegian Seafood Council has said the South Korean market is going from strength to strength for its exports, with mackerel top of the list. In fact, Norwegian mackerel was featured on a TV programme on Korea’s largest station, with the commentator saying it is larger and fatter than mackerel from elsewhere and has a higher omega-3 content. Koreans eat more seafood than most other nations in the world, with mackerel the favourite. Norway now has 82 per cent of the mackerel market in South Korea.
