MSC


Marine Stewardship Council confirms the highest quality of our omega-3 oil. You are 100% guaranteed that fish used for the production of EQ Pure Arctic Oil comes only from legal and reliable sources.

Traceability is one of the main principles of MSC certification standards. Therefore, EQ Pure Arctic Oil is sourced and processed to the highest standards of sustainability. This system allows you to monitor the supply chain, thus preventing the entry of endangered fish and seafood on the market. The certificate confirms that fish caught for Eqology omega-3 oil comes from a legitimate source. On their website, the organisation speak out:

We’re on a mission to end overfishing. Ensure future generations can enjoy the wild seafood we love by choosing certified sustainable seafood with the bluefish label.
