DUTCH HARBOR, Alaska, May 3, 2022 (Newswire.com) - Bering Select, manufacturers of wild caught Alaskan cod and salmon derived omega-3 ingredients, has announced the attainment of Alaskan Responsible Fisheries Management (RFM). Alaska RFM, is benchmarked by the Global Sustainable Seafood Initiative and aligned with the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization Code of Conduct for Responsible Fisheries, the most comprehensive set of international standards and best practices for wild fisheries.
Joel Watson, President of Bering Select commented that, "Alaska RFM provides credible standards for sustainable fishing and supply chain traceability. Consumers and brand partners can feel confident that omega-3 ingredients sourced from Alaska RFM certified fisheries provide documented third-party assurance of responsible seafood sourcing policies".
Bering Select has a direct relationship with the fishing operations that harvest cod in the Bering Sea. Omega-3 ingredient manufacturing is conducted at their custom-built processing facility in Dutch Harbor, Alaska. According to company President Joel Watson, "By building our processing facility in Dutch Harbor, the epicenter of the Bering Sea fisheries, we can access fresh, abundant, line caught cod that we process when the fishing vessels return to port. This is a tremendous advantage that is reflected in the freshness and quality of our omega-3 ingredients."
