Amundsen Omega-3 Fish Oil Now Certified Friend of the Sea

01 March 2013

NORWAY - Amundsen Omega3 supplements, are now carrying Friend of the Sea seal of approval. The fishoil at the base of the whole product line originates from approved Friend of the Sea fisheries.

The fish oil is sourced from anchovies fished in the South East Pacific Ocean by a Friend of the Sea approved purse seine fleet.

The fishery is managed according to sustainable criteria, with highly selective fishing methods and from stocks that are not overfished nor overexploited.

“We care for the environment and that’s why we rely on Friend of the Sea to prove the sustainable origin of our products,” explains Rune Skjoldal, CEO of Amundsen.

“We’re glad that Amundsen joined our certification program: our common aim is conservation of the marine habitat,” adds Paolo Bray, Director of Friend of the Sea certification programme.
