Responsible Management

Management of the fishing grounds around Iceland is based on allocating a fixed share of the permitted catch of the various species to each vessel. The government, spearheaded by the Ministry of Fisheries, works tirelessly to ensure self-sustaining utilization of the natural resources. All decisions are based on scientific criteria and the careful work of the Marine Research Institute.

Protection of the fish in Iceland's fishing grounds is based on three main methods:

  • Catch regulations, which are developed for each utilizable fish stock. This involves deciding yearly how large a proportion of the stocks may be allocated for fishing.
  • Regulations controlling the fishing gear. Emphasis is placed on the efficacy of the equipment used, which means that effort is made to fish only those species and sizes that are sought.
  • Protection and closing of specific areas. This means that use of certain equipment is banned in specific areas or the area is completely closed to fishing. This is done to protect, for example, spawning fish or the juvenile fish.

These regulations are enforced with extensive policing that is second to none in the world.

Wild Caught

The 'frozen at sea' process employs a quick freezing process that ' locks-in' the quality and goodness of the fish. The catch is cleaned, filleted and then frozen on the trawlers within five hours which guarantees freshness and quality when the fish reaches the place of sale.

The result is an extremely fresh tasting fillet of cod, haddock and pollock that has no chemicals or preservatives and is very rich in protein and omega-3s. From both a nutritional and environmental point of view, wild caught fish is far superior than farm-raised for this very reason.

  • Consistent high quality taste
  • 'Ocean Wild' - not farmed
  • No 'E' numbers
  • Caught in well managed waters of Iceland and Barents Sea
  • Filleted and frozen within 5 hours of being caught
  • FAS fillets are 'Fresher' than variable 'Fresh'
  • Blind tastes test 12 out of 14 choose FAS
  • No smell and minimal wastage
  • Superior quality to 'double frozen imports' and 'farmed fresh' imports
  • Not subject to availability due to adverse weather conditions
  • Market prices are more consistent then 'fresh'
