In 1903 Icelandic fishermen discovered rich shoals of herring in the seas surrounding their island. In less than a decade, modern fish oil production started as this newfound treasure attracted fishermen now returning from the open ocean with their ships filled with this ‘Silver of the Sea’.
Today FISKOLÍA fish oil is crafted from wild herring caught in the pristine North Atlantic Ocean surrounding Iceland. Naturally rich in Omega-3 fatty acids and developed through years of tradition, FISKOLíA may hold the key to the country’s well-known longevity.
Responsibly monitored and controlled herring fisheries play an important part in maintaining levels of employment and residency in the rural fishing villages across Iceland.
FISKOLÍA works with fisheries Marine Stewardship Council (MSC) certified for international recognition of a sustainable approach to preserving a natural balance in the sea environment.
