Nordic Seafood: a single contact with a world of possibilities

Our quality control department checks the in-coming supplies as well as our own production before distributing products throughout Europe.
Nordic Seafood actively supports sustainability in the seafood industry
Marine Stewardship Council (MSC) and Aquaculture Stewardship Council (ASC) are international non-profit organizations created to promote solutions to the problem of overfishing and responsible aquaculture. The MSC runs the only internationally recognized environmental certification and eco-labelling program for sustainability in wild capture fisheries. More than 400 processors, factories and seafood companies meet the MSC’s traceability standard, the Chain of Custody, which ensures the blue MSC label is only placed on fish that comes from a certified fishery. The ASC has developed a certification program for responsible aquaculture and works with international producers and companies in the fish chain. The green ASC label makes it easy for the consumers that they are buying responsibly farmed seafood – fish, crustaceans and shellfish – towards environmental sustainability.
