A balanced diet for you, means balanced for the planet too

At Zooca we’re unlocking the potential of sustainable, high-quality nutrition for everyone. Wouldn’t it be great to float through life, knowing that your wellness and the planet are on the same wavelength?

Zooca’s resource, Calanus finmarchicus,
is one of the world’s most sustainable
marine resources.

Calanus finmarchicus is also one of the most ecologically important species in the marine ecosystem. This is due to its role in the marine food web and as a key player in the energy transfer between lower and higher trophic levels. Sustainability is thus important in all parts of Zooca’ s value chain. When harvesting Zooca has developed technology to reduce bycatch and incidental mortality. In our production we use all the raw material and only water is filtered out. There is no need to refine the products, and no need for additives or use of chemicals. The company has modern quality systems, effective routines, numerous certifications and good product documentation in place.

Total transparency

Zooca has invested, developed, and patented an environmentally friendly technology for harvesting of Calanus finmarchicus. All harvesting operations are carried out with total transparency, and Zooca adheres to the highest environmental standards in all aspects of its operations, and practices harvesting in a sustainable manner. Our ambition is to minimize any negative effects upon the marine environment. This is implemented internally through a Policy for Sustainable Harvesting and is a key pillar in all operations at sea.

The authority responsible for the management of the Calanus fishery is The Ministry of Trade, Industry and Fisheries, acting as a secretariat for the Minister of Fisheries. The Department for Fisheries and Aquaculture is responsible for matters related to fisheries, the fishing fleet and the aquaculture industry. The major legal instrument under which this authority, enterprises and fishery operates is the Marine Resources Act (MRA). This legislative framework has an explicit precautionary approach based on sustainability principles. Zooca complies in total to the allocated quotas and precautionary principles in the MRA.


During certifications and revisions, an extensive audit of all aspects of operations have been carried out by an objective third-party and found to be compliant, sustainable and within limits.
