All Fish Stocks and Fish Oil Products Certified Sustainable

Nordic Naturals is pleased to be recognised with certification from Friend of the Sea (FOS), the international reference standard for producers of omega-3 fish oil. Nordic Naturals sources all of its fish from waters that are certified sustainable by FOS, and all omega-3 products are now FOS certified as well, a reflection of the company’s long-standing commitment to sustainability.

This important certification verifies that Nordic Naturals complies with rigorous standards that ensure long-term, sustainable fish oil manufacturing. These criteria include:

  • Products are from fish stocks that are not overexploited
  • Fishing practices prevent bycatch of endangered species
  • Fishing practices reduce ecosystem impact
  • Manufacturing reflects energy efficiencies
  • Company practices include high standards for social accountability

According to Joar Opheim, Founder and CEO of Nordic Naturals,

“Since our founding, we have been committed to the health of the oceans. Environmental stewardship is a core value for Nordic Naturals. Friend of the Sea certification is important for the environment, our company, and the confidence of our customers.”

Information about the certification is also available on Nordic Naturals’ website.
