“Skrei is Arctic Cod (Gadus morhua), which every winter and spring makes giant walks in large numbers to the Norwegian coast and migration to the central areas of the Barents Sea. Skrei is also a term used for the Norwegian Arctic cod stock.
Approximately 40% of the cod spawn in the Lofoten area in Nordland in February-April, but the cod spawning area extends from the northwest coast, or even down at Haugesund, Sørøya in Finnmark. The annual cod fishing is particularly extensive in Nordland, and cod is considered Norway’s oldest export product. The fish is traditionally served drawn in lightly salted water, with livers and boiled potatoes as a side dish (moelje).
The word skrei comes from the Norwegian word skreið which means fish that goes or walks” (From Wikipedia)
