“As the market for nutritional products embraces omega-3s, we are seeing producers step up and commit to sustainable practices,” said Paolo Bray, director of Friend of the Sea. “This is the right move, as these companies’ success depends on sustainable sources. We are very pleased to welcome DailyNutra to this esteemed group of environmentally conscious businesses.”

DailyNutra, based in Fairfax, CA, formulates, designs and manufactures nutritional products made from premium ingredients, the company stated. Their offerings are backed by human clinical science. DailyNutra’s Neptune Krill Oil (NKO) product, which has received the FOS certification, is a 1,000 mg tablet of 100 percent pure Antarctic krill oil that provides a rich source of omega-3s.

DailyNutra said that it believes that krill is the sustainable choice. Krill are a small marine organism, growing up to about 5 CM in length. However, they are plentiful. The worldwide biomass of the Antarctic krill (Euphausia superba), the species DailyNutra uses, is estimated at 420,000,000 metric tons.

The company’s fishery source is governed by the Commission for the Conservation of Antarctic Marine Living Resources. This organization establishes yearly allowable fishing quotas. While the quota of 2.7 percent of krill is allowed, less than 0.06 percent of the krill biomass is actually harvested on an annual basis. Krill fishing is among the most regulated types of seafood production in the world. Every krill fishing boat must be licensed. Regulations set strict limits on how they fish, e.g. using nets that won’t snare larger fish and mammals.
