Quality


Skagerak Pelagic A/S is a consumer-oriented production company with an acute awareness of consumers’ increasing demands for healthy, nutritional and sustainable food products. We only use raw materials from sustainable fisheries and offer full traceability from catch to end product.

Traceability
All information concerning the raw material used in our production - that is ICES fishing area, square and fishing position - is reported to the Ministry of Food, Agriculture and Fisheries, and the Danish Fishing Directorate, in accordance with Danish and EU legislation. Here the information is controlled and passed on to ICES and the EU for the preparation of future quotas and regulation of fisheries.

With the aid of satellites, the EU fishery inspection monitors and controls all vessels delivering to Skagerak Pelagic A/S to ensure that they comply with EU legislation and regulations concerning fishing, fishing area and quotas.


Sustainable catch levels
In order to ensure sustainability, Skagerak Pelagic A/S only uses fish caught with purse seine or pelagic trawl. These types of fishing gear are not in contact with and, therefore, do not affect the seabed.

Skagerak Pelagic A/S supported the preparation of the Danish Pelagic White Paper, the code of conduct in the Danish pelagic sector. This paper was used as the basic documentation in the MSC certification process for the Danish pelagic fishery.
