Standards and certifications

MSC

seafoodexport certification msc

The Marine stewardship Council's vision is a world where the oceans are brimming with life and replenishment of fish stocks are guaranteed for this generation and those that follow.

The MSC's mission is to use its label and fishery certification programme to improve the health of our oceans, by recognising and rewarding sustainable practises and guiding consumer choices.

In this capacity, at Seafoodia, we participate in replenishment of the species, notably thanks to the development of biodegradable lobster traps for our Prince Edward Island lobster sector.

An opening has been designed in order that smaller specimens are able to escape. In this manner only sexually mature specimens are captured. Furthermore, a biodegradable cord stops the cage from capturing any more lobster after 65 days underwater, eliminating any chance of ghost fishing.

Friend of the Sea

Seafoodexport certification GMP+

The chief goal of Friends of the Sea is sustainable development. This is particularly important, since our oceans represent an important source of biodiversity, and the principe food source for 2.5 billion people. Furthermore, the oceans contain 97% or the world's water and act as biofilters by absorbing up to 30% of our CO2 emissions.

In order to ensure the prosperity of these ecosystems and continued fishing, Friends of the Sea promote selective fishing, which is non-destructive of marine habitats. The certification organisation ensures environmental impact control and the social responsibility of those acting in the fishing sector.

FOCUSING ON GROWING THE MARKETS FOR EPA AND DHA PRODUCTS

The Global Organization for EPA and DHA Omega-3s (GOED) is a member-driven organization. We are represented in the board of directors comprised of Leadership Level members who are responsible for advancing GOED's mission.

GOED is A proactive and accountable association of the finest manufacturers, marketers, and supporters of EPA and DHA omega-3 fatty acids, working to educate consumers and work with government groups, the healthcare community and the industry, while setting high ethical and quality standards for our business sector.

Their Mission
To support GOED members who are committed to responsibly developing, sustaining and expanding markets for EPA & DHA Omega-3s, while promoting health benefits, supporting public education and safety, establishing ethical business and product quality standards, and advancing government, healthcare and industry relations.

GOED
The roots of GOED go back to 2000 when the industry collaborated to petition the US Food and Drug Administration to establish a heart disease risk reduction claim for omega-3s. The companies involved later formalized the relationship by forming the Omega-3 Working Group at the Council for Responsible Nutrition and collaborating again to develop what is now known as the GOED Voluntary Monograph. In 2006, when the Working Group was dissolved, twelve of the companies banded together to found GOED with a strong mandate to grow their membership to represent all sections of the EPA and DHA market.
