Smoked herring method of production

An age-old tradition from the southern shores of New Brunswick, Canada: smoked herring, salted herring and alewife. Fresh caught from the Atlantic cold water, the herring is cured for 1 week in brine using coarse natural salt. Then it is lightly desalted, smoked and dried slowly over fires smoldering from a mixture of local soft and hard wood. It is smoked for up to a month. This process handed down from generation to generation results in a product with a distinct flavor that has become renowned in many countries of the world.

Fishing season: end of August to mid October but availabilities all year long
