“As the evidence behind fish oil continues to grow and drive awareness of the crucial importance of omega-3s to good health, it’s more important than ever to understand how purity, freshness, and structure determine the overall quality of fish oil. I founded Nordic Naturals with the fundamental goal of improving fish oil quality, and today our commitment to innovation remains absolute.”
—Joar Opheim, CEO
Born in Norway
Joar OpheimNordic Naturals was born in Arctic Norway, where founder Joar Opheim grew up and where fish oil is a part of everyday life. When he came to California in the mid-1980s to complete his MBA, Joar was unable to find the quality fish oil he relied on to manage his old gymnastic injuries, and had to consistently bring bottles from Norway—filling his suitcase on trips back and forth.
Driven by his Norwegian heritage, knowledge of fish oil, and love of science, Joar was inspired to advance fish oil quality and industry standards. Guided by his personal mission to bring high-quality fish oil to the world, Joar has developed several patented fish oil technologies that include flavoring, taste, delivery, and processing—shaping standards for a country and industry that had few guidelines in place.
Today, Nordic Naturals is a leading supplier of fish oils worldwide, offering a wide variety of flavors, concentrations, and delivery forms to meet personalized nutritional needs.

Since our founding, Nordic Naturals has always been deeply committed to the health of our oceans. Our environmental stewardship includes:
To prevent overfishing, 100% of our fish is sourced in compliance with the Norwegian fisheries management system, which has been a model of sustainability for over 30 years.
We use responsible fishing gear—including purse seine nets, sorting grids, and large meshes—to protect against bycatch of unintended species.
We use line and net fishing methods to prevent the seafloor and ecosystem damage caused by methods such as bottom trawling and dredging.
Marine Pollution Prevention
Up to 80% of marine pollution is caused by land-based sources such as runoff, sewage, and waste. Our coastal processing facilities are industry leaders in minimizing pollution and conserving resources.
Nordic Naturals uses only wild-caught, sustainably-sourced fish:
Arctic Cod (Skrei)
Sourced from the Norwegian Sea
Fishing regulations include quotas, minimum catch and net mesh sizes, fishing ground closures,
and net and line fishing methods
Pacific and Atlantic Anchovies and Sardines
Sourced from the South Pacific and Atlantic oceans
