There is a time to time shortage of
raw material, i.e. krill oil, due to the responsible hunting and control of the
sustainability of krill biomass in the world’s oceans.
krill maintains the life of a variety of marine animals
The krill biomass is
one of the largest on our planet. This tiny crab, present in all oceans, has a
vital position in the marine food chain. Through millions of years of
evolution, krill’s bioactive components and molecules have kept different species
of marine animals alive.
The Antarctic krill
(Euphausia superba) makes an estimated biomass of about 379 000 000 tonnes,
making it one of the species with the highest total biomass.
Strict control of krill hunting
Antarctic krill biomass is strictly
controlled by the International Commission for the Conservation of Antarctic
Marine Living Resources (CCAMLR), which consists of members from 25 countries.
This is a unique,
official organization involved in the international monitoring of krill catch sustainability
and the control and monitoring of krill stocks. There has never been a reported
or announced reduction, or the risk of a decrease in krill biomass by CCAMLR.
Antarctic krill fishing is one of the
most sustainable in the world. It is characterized by fully transparent
operations and certifications of the highest standard for sustainable
fisheries. In 2016, krill fishing received the highest “A” rating
from the Sustainable Fisheries Partnership as the only one in the world for
biomass hunting estimated to be “in very good condition”.
Prior to the first hunt, our supplier
contacts WWF Norway to have an open dialogue on how to conduct sustainable
fishing for krill in Antarctic waters. Their feedback is appreciated every step
of the way, especially their incentives for sustainability certification by the
Marine Stevardship Council (MSC).
An environmentally responsible
From the outset, our krill oil
supplier is committed to becoming an environmentally responsible manufacturer who
is part of the solution, not the problem. This has led to the development of
new ecological hunting technology. We are proud of that!
Eco-hunting uses a system that
reduces the number of times the net is put, distributed, and taken out of the
water. This process reduces the risk of other fish being caught in the net when
the krill is taken on board.
Thanks to eco sustainable fishing (“eko harvesting”), specially developed eco production
technology and the purity of the habitats of the world’s cleanest seas –
obtaining krill oil is easy.
The catch is caught in nets,
extracted on ships, the krill mass is then pressed, and the oil is extracted using
Krill oil is incredibly pure – it
does not contain toxins or heavy metals, so no additional processing and
purification processes are needed.
This is why krill oil is the purest and healthiest
source of omega-3 for children.
