SOVIK, NorwayThe Oceans Omega-3 ingredient line from Pharma Marine can now carry the Friend of the Sea seal of approval. Pharma Marine is already Friend of the Sea certified for the Calamarine® and CodMarine® line of eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA)/docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) concentrates from sustainable seafood sources.

A reliable chain of custody is maintained throughout the supply chain from fisheries to manufacturing facility ensuring that mixing with non-certified raw materials will not occur. Labels provide clear data about origin, fishing method and fishing area.

The raw materials used in the Oceans line are certified EU human food grade and utilizes several species in order to minimize the burden on any single marine resource.
