Although most of the world’s Fish Oil is made from Peruvian Anchovy caught off the coast of South America, many brands promote their oils as Norwegian. This typically refers to the country where concentration and refining happens, not the country where the fish is caught and made into oil. Other than Norwegian Cod Liver Oils, Norway does not catch many fish destined for Omega-3 supplements.
“1/3 of all the wild fish caught on earth end up as fish meal or fish oil. Of that, 81 percent goes to feed farmed fish.”
