OMEGA-3 FISH OILS

Sardine oil

Pelagic fish is an important source for fisheries in Morocco and Mauritania. The sardine stock is managed under a robust management system and stock status is evaluated by models and surveys.
OLVEA has been supporting the management of this fishery for many years through the sardine FIP in Morocco and Mauritania. However, the anchovy fishery now has its own FIP, and an independent evaluation which makes it close to the level required for MSC certification.

The Moroccan sardine fishery has been in Fishery Improvement Project (FIP) since 2014, working towards MSC certification. OLVEA and our suppliers have been consistent supporters of the FIP since the beginning. The FIP has been given an A rating by independent evaluation, and the fishery has now been evaluated to meet the requirements for MSC certification – work is underway to launch an assessment.

In Mauritania, fishing is crutial to the economy and well-being of its people, supplying up to 10% of GDP and around 30% of the national budget. OLVEA’s investment in Mauritania aims to support long-term sustainable development. OLVEA started a FIP in Mauritania in 2017 and we are working with suppliers and competitors alike to take the lead in moving the fishery towards sustainability. The FIP was recently accepted under the MarinTrust Improver Programme.

As a result of our commitment to sustainable fishing, OLVEA Fish Oils is certified MarinTrust Chain of Custody and Friend of the Sea for the Moroccan sardine oils.
