Friend of the Sea certification programme contributes to the health of the oceans by certifying and promoting sustainable fishing practices.

More and more fisheries around the world are motivated to fish sustainably, in order to meet Friend of the Sea standards and achieve certification.

The following fisheries and fleets per given species are approved by Friend of the Sea.
Seafood products originating from these fisheries and fleets are certified.
