Sustainable fishing

Möller’s makes sure that all of the fish we use is caught in a justifiable manner, without threatening endangered species or the balance of the sea. 

Cod Liver Oil and sustainable fishing

Möller’s Cod Liver Oil is made from fresh liver from wild Norwegian Arctic cod, also called Skrei. The cod stock migrates from the Barents sea to the waters of Lofoten and Vesterålen, where it is caught during the spawn period (February – April). 

The Norwegian Arctic cod is protected against overfishing by quota regulations and regulations aiming at protecting young fish, set by the Norwegian-Russian Fisheries Commission. This is one of the strictest regulated stocks in the world and the fishermen are not allowed to fish more than their quota. Even though we only use the liver of the fish for cod liver oil, nothing is wasted, as the rest of the fish is used for human consumption. 

Fish oil and sustainable fishing

The fish oil used in Möller’s omega 3 capsules is produced from cold water oily fish such as anchovies and sardines caught off the coast of South America. The fish stock in this sea is viable and the area is well regulated and not threatened by overfishing. All of our suppliers of raw fish oil are approved by the local authorities and have their documentation in order. We regularly visit the facilities ourselves to ensure that they live up to our strict requirements.
