New Offerings

Available Summer 2018

Great Northern Products is excited to offer a new line of Paiche (Arapaima Gigas) from Brazil. Native to the Amazon river basin, the Arapaima inhabits the floodplains where the water is quieter. The Arapaima is one of the largest freshwater fish in the world and can reach lengths of more than 2 M (6.6ft) and weigh over 200 Kg (440lbs). Their meat is pale, and has a mild taste. The flavor, firm texture and its fat content give the fish great flexibility in preparation methods, which may be equally enjoyed grilled, fried, baked or smoked.

 

Also called Pirarucu, this fish is CITES certified. We will offer 2-4 lb whole fillets as well as portions cut in 7-9 oz sizes. We are happy to discuss this new offering with our current or potential wholesale customers. Call or email to talk to a sales representative today!
