Friend of the Sea (FOS) is an internationally recognized, non-profit organization whose mission is to conserve the global marine habitat. FOS operates leading certification projects, which verify the sustainability of fisheries, as well as omega-3 fish oil products.
Nordic Naturals sources all of its fish from waters that are certified sustainable by FOS, and all of our products are FOS certified as well.
This verifies that Nordic Naturals complies with rigorous criteria that 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
Since our founding, Nordic Naturals has been committed to the health of the oceans. FOS certification is important not only for customers, but also for our company and the environment.
