Sustainable Fishing

More and more, we all need to do what we can to take good care of the environment – to do the right thing. At King Oscar, we know that means keeping oceans healthy and using responsibly grown ingredients. So we are committed to the most forward-looking and rigorous sustainability efforts. All because a cleaner, greener planet means a happier, healthier you.


True to our Norwegian heritage, King Oscar has long been committed to protecting and enhancing our fishing grounds and taking only what the seas can support. In fact, Norway tops the FAO’s list of responsible fisheries.

We trade solely with approved suppliers and local fishermen with full traceability. Our catches are backed by catch certificates covering vessels and catch areas. And we adhere to quotas set by the International Council for the Exploration of the Sea (ICES) and Norwegian Fisheries Management, based on leading marine science. Where possible, we source from waters certified by the Marine Stewardship Council (MSC).

As always, we take a firm stance against illegal, unregulated and unreported (IUU) fishing, wasteful discards, and irresponsible by-catches. In fact, our catches must meet the toughest industry standards – as well as our own more stringent ones.


Our commitment doesn’t stop with fishing. Our sustainability efforts are directed at the entire chain – from eco-friendly catch methods to sound processing and storage practices, all the way through recyclable, BPA-NI certified packaging and regulated export. King Oscar wants to be part of comprehensive, smart solutions. Now and for generations to come.
