The people of Rimfrost love the waters off the Antarctic coast. Their roots lie in the small Norwegian town of Fosnavåg, where the founder, Stig Remøy, invested in his first fishing vessel at the age of 19. Respect for tradition and nature draws them to the Antarctic. Advanced technology in the hands of skillful teams allows them to return with the finest krill oil in the world.
Krill oil is rich in EPA and DHA omega-3 fatty acids bound not in triglycerides like fish oils, but in phospholipids, structures found in every cell in the body. Krill oil also contains astaxanthin, an antioxidant which gives krill its unmistakable red color.
Krill fishing is a fascinating challenge. The tiny crustaceans must be handled gently, which they do aboard what may be the most technologically advanced vessel in the Antarctic. At the same time, they’re passionate about preserving the ecosystem.
Their vessel operates under the Commission for the Conservation of Antarctic Marine Living Resources (CCAMLR), along with the Norwegian Ministry/Directorate of Fisheries, and the Government of South Georgia and the South Sandwich Islands (GSGSSI). Last year, they entered the assessment for the Marine Stewardship Council’s credible standard for sustainable fishing. Once received, their krill products will qualify for the blue MSC ecolabel.
Only those who love the sea and the cold produce the best krill oil.
