A sustainable industry


The Danish fishmeal producers are dedicated to the sustainable utilization of natural resources, guided by biological advice. Our commitment includes:

  1. Preventing Overfishing: Ensuring that fish stocks are maintained within safe biological boundaries and undergo rigorous monitoring to prevent overfishing.
  2. Responsible Fish Selection: Utilizing fish with little to no demand for direct human consumption, and incorporating rest raw materials/trimmings from the filleting industry.
  3. Certification and Oversight: Obtaining certifications from independent third parties for both our stocks and factories, demonstrating our adherence to stringent standards. We comply with recognized organizations such as MarinTrust, MSC, and the FAO Code of Conduct.
  4. Environmentally Conscious Aquaculture: Our fishmeal is primarily employed in aquaculture production, known for its low environmental footprint compared to alternatives like beef and pork.

High quality products

  1. Raw Material Freshness: Our commitment begins with the freshness of raw materials, ensuring that only the highest quality ingredients are used in our production processes.
  2. State-of-the-Art Vessels: We employ modern vessels equipped with advanced cooling systems to preserve the freshness of the catch during transport.
  3. Eco-Friendly Pelagic Fishing: Embracing pelagic fishing methods that have minimal impact on ecosystems, reflecting our dedication to sustainable practices.
  4. Full Traceability: Every product is accompanied by full traceability, allowing customers to verify the species and origin of the raw materials used.
  5. Pollutant Removal: Our advanced production and rinsing facilities are designed to eliminate persistent organic pollutants that may be present in the raw materials, ensuring a pure and uncontaminated end product.
  6. Purity Assurance: Products undergo rigorous testing to guarantee purity, being free from contaminants, pathogenic organisms, mycotoxins, natural toxins, and any other potential health risks.
  7. Quality Testing Throughout: Quality testing is a continuous process, conducted from the moment of catch to the final delivery to customers, adhering to the highest industry standards. Danish fishmeal is certified according to ISO standards, reflecting our commitment to excellence.


Health benefits

Fishmeal and fish oil have long been recognized as valuable components in various industries, from aquaculture to animal nutrition and even human health. The rich nutritional profile of these marine products is attributed to their unique composition of essential fatty acids, proteins and micronutrients.

Protein-Rich Nutritional Powerhouses

Fishmeal’s distinction as a superior protein source stems from its rich and balanced amino acid profile. Comprising all essential amino acids required for optimal growth and development, fishmeal offers a complete and highly digestible protein source. The digestibility of fishmeal protein is a critical factor, as it ensures that the amino acids are efficiently absorbed and utilized by animals, promoting growth and enhancing metabolic efficiency.

Essential Fatty Acids for Human Health

Fish oil is renowned for its omega-3 fatty acid content. These essential fatty acids, specifically EPA (eicosapentaenoic acid) and DHA (docosahexaenoic acid), play crucial roles in cardiovascular health, brain function, and anti-inflammatory processes. The Scientific literature consistently highlights the positive impact of omega-3 fatty acids on human health.  EPA for its role in lower blood pressure, conferring anti-inflammatory effects on the cardiovascular system. Whilst DHA is a major structural component of the brain, playing a crucial role in cognitive development and maintenance.

Strategic feed ingredients

Fishmeal and fish oil stand unrivaled as the most invaluable components in the diets of both aquaculture and various terrestrial animals. Their composition of essential micronutrients, encompassing amino acids, vitamins, and minerals, plays a pivotal role in supporting optimal growth and physiological functions in animals and farmed fish, rendering fishmeal and fish oil irreplaceable in the realm of feed ingredients.

Key attributes of fishmeal and fish oil include:

  1. High protein content ranging from 62-75%. Protein is key to growth and fishmeal is among the best available ingredients for protein. The protein in fishmeal is also highly digestible exceeding the majority of other animal feed ingredients for this factor, with values consistently around 90%.
  2. Fish oil is a  rich source of long-chain omega-3 fatty acids, specifically eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA), which are crucial for promoting health and vitality. In addition, fishmeal usually contains 8-12% lipid and is therefore also a rich source of long chain omega-3s compared to other feed ingredients, barring fish oil itself.
  3. Amino acids: Fish and animals have requirements for specific amino acids and they build proteins with combinations of about 22 amino acids. However, animals cannot make all 22 of these amino acids in their body and these amino acids are classified as “essential”. There are ten essential amino acids that must be contained in the diet. Fishmeal is well known for its essential amino acids it can provide to animals though its high palatability and digestibility characteristics
  4. Marine phospholipids have drawn a great deal of interest recently as they are considered to have better resistance to oxidation, better bioavailability, and a higher content of ω-3 PUFAs than lipids from the same source. Therefore, supplementation of foods with ω-3 PUFAs rich PLs has recently emerged as a food supplement and pharmaceutical applications
  5. Furthermore, these ingredients boast a diverse array of essential minerals such as calcium, phosphorus, magnesium, potassium, and selenium, ensuring a well-rounded nutritional profile.

The inclusion of vital vitamins—B1, B2, B6, and B12—further contributes to the comprehensive micronutrient profile of fishmeal and fish oil, enhancing their role as catalysts for physiological well-being in animals. Notably, these ingredients exhibit a comparatively high digestibility, enhancing their efficacy in supporting nutrient absorption and utilization within the digestive systems of diverse species.
