Ocean Venture AS

Who we are

Ocean Venture is a fishing company operating with vessels equipped to catch snow crab. Our mission is to catch and produce the product on-board, then ship worldwide to our customers without any loss in quality. That is why we have a state of the art factory on-board that produces a finished product immediately after catching. 

What do we catch?

We focus on snow crab. Chionoecetes opilio is the scientific name of the snow crab. It is considered a true crab and has five pairs of legs. They are smaller than the King crab and weigh anywhere from 2 to 4 pounds when fully mature. Snow crabs are more accessible and abundant than King crab and are generally harvested in the waters stretching from California up to the Gulf of Alaska and into the Bering Sea and the Arctic Ocean.

How we operate

Snow crab fishery

We catch snow crab with thousands of crab pots, working 24 hours a day for a month before returning to land to change crew, refuel and offload our catch. Then go straight back at it. The season for snow crab lasts 6-8 months a year.

Production

We produce the finished product onboard. Immediately after catching the crab, it is processed, frozen and then packaged, ready for delivery to our storage on land where it is ready for exporting.

Global Export

Once the crab product reaches land it has already been sold. It is then shipped to the customer worldwide , usually by ship, in freezing containers to keep the quality 100% all the time.
