About Sashimi Royal

Sashimi Royal and its sister company Maximus are owned by Norwegian shareholders. Our objective as the first major producer in Northern Europa is to premier supplier of Yellowtail Kingfish to customers in the EU region. Quality and sustainability are our guiding principles in production and in delivery of our product. We have delivered to the market since spring 2018.

Our primary mission is to make a delicate and sought-after seafood product available to the local EU market. Sashimi Royal is the first large-scale, land-based facility in the EU that produces Yellowtail. Total annual production is 1200 tons with an year-round supply. We have been farming Yellowtail for the past three years and refined the production method to achieve good spawning and fish welfare.

The Sashimi Royal production facility is located near the port of Hanstholm in Denmark, on a 30.000 m2 plot located next to the shore. Hanstholm has a long and proud history in the seafood industry with a range of companies working with seafood products.

In addition, we have an experienced staff dedicated to care for our fish and producing high quality products for our demanding customers.

The facility has received substantial financial support from the Danish authorities due to its innovative approach. Upon production start, Sashimi Royal will seek ASC certification as quality mark.

We have received Food Authority approval. Please find documentation here
