FAQ

What part of the world do your AlaskOmega™ fish oils come from?

Our AlaskOmega™ Omega-3 oils are harvested from the pristine waters of the US-managed North Pacific and Bering Sea fisheries. Comprising over 775,000 square miles in area, the Bering Sea is one of the world’s most pristine and productive ecosystems for marine life.

What kind of fish does your AlaskOmega™ fish oil come from?

Our AlaskOmega™ Omega-3 oils are sourced from MSC-certified sustainable wild-caught US whitefish, such as Bering Sea/Aleutian Islands (BSAI) and Gulf of Alaska (GOA) Walleye Pollock (Theragra chalcogramma), North Pacific Whiting (or Hake) (Merluccius productus), and/or North Pacific Cod, (Gadus macrocephalus), and any combination thereof, all of which are members of the Cod order, Gadiformes.

Are AlaskOmega™ fish oils fresh?

Yes! Our AlaskOmega™ fish oils are produced from fresh fish within hours of being caught on board by at-sea catcher-processors, or by local shoreside processors. Since the flesh of the fish is a significant source of human nutrition worldwide, high attention to freshness and sanitation is built in the entire process from the beginning.

Is AlaskOmega™ certified sustainable?

Yes!  AlaskOmega™ Omega-3 oils have been been certified sustainable by the Marin Stewardship Council.  You can view our certificate of sustainability here.  The North Pacific & Bering Sea whitefish fisheries are recognized around the world for their conservative management over the past 30 years. In particular, the Alaskan Pollock, Pacific Whiting, and Pacific Cod fisheries have been certified as sustainable by the Marine Stewardship Council (MSC). US government observers on board the vessels and at the processing plants ensure that strict quotas are adhered to and that bycatch is minimized to eliminate overfishing.
