SUSTAINABILITY TROUGH RESPONSIBILITY
Krill is a highly important element of the Antarctic ecosystem - a keystone species that feeds creatures such as whales, penguins, seals and seabirds. It is our obligation to ensure that catching krill does not affect this ecosystem undesirably and that the industry as a whole operates in a responsible manner.
The latter is crucial for the wellbeing of the Antarctic ecosystem, as well as our business. We are in it for the long haul, and the preservation of the Antarctic ecosystem alongside a sustainable commercial krill fishery is vital for the future of our business.
WE SUPPORT TIGHT REGULATIONS AND CONTROL
As Norwegians, we are given a head start on issues of sustainability due to tight rules and regulations governing our fishing operations. We are required to monitor and report our catch data on a daily basis to both national authorities and CCAMLR. In addition, we had mandatory observers on board our vessel at all times - a practice that we greatly encourage and would like to see applied universally.
