Miekojärvi Zander – Finnish high quality zander

The World’s northernmost natural population of zander is in Miekojärvi Lake in Lapland, Finland. Zander is known for its good taste, which can be traced to clean water sources, and its diet of salmonids, vendace and smelt. Also, lake crayfish are part of the zander’s basic diet. We aim to keep zander in our selection all year round. It is fished with fyke nets, fishing nets and rods.

Zander is a versatile fish for cooking and is easily boneless. It is brilliant in a frying pan, but is also tasty boiled, steamed, baked, grilled, marinated, smoked and in sushi.
