About the new herring

In the Netherlands, herring has been eaten for many centuries, initially for home consumption. The herring fleet started around the year 1000, but herring fishing became significant in the 14th century when herring gutting was invented. This process involved removing the intestines and salting the fish, making herring a staple food. It was cheap, nutritious, and could be preserved well, becoming a major export for Amsterdam traders.

Although the herring is now mostly caught in Norwegian, Scottish, or Danish waters, the traditional Dutch preparation method is still used. In France, especially Normandy, herring is also celebrated, often grilled with lemon and white wine, unlike the Dutch who eat it raw.

There are different ways to eat herring in the Netherlands. In Rotterdam, people grab it by the tail, dip it in onions, and eat it whole. In Amsterdam, herring is cut into pieces with onions and a sour gherkin on the side. This tradition started to make herring more affordable for everyone.


Did you know ?

The "Hollandse Nieuwe" herring is at least three years old, caught between May and July, and prepared in a traditional way. It must have a minimum fat percentage of 16%.

Today, herring must be frozen before consumption to kill parasites, making it safe and healthy to eat. Herring is rich in omega-3 fats, which lower cholesterol.

Thank you CERTA advocaten for hosting the members of the Business Club and for creating such a pleasant atmosphere where one could easily meet new people & extend its network.
