At Rabs we take sourcing our produce from the right place incredibly serious therefore we made sure we did our research prior to starting up. For our fish we source this from sustainable and ethical sources. All our fish are premium and sourced via our supplier from Iceland. 

Icelandic fisheries companies take their responsibilities seriously as food manufacturers and as pillars of the economic prosperity for the Icelandic nation. Companies within Fisheries Iceland (Samtok fyrirtaekja f sjavarutvegi, SFS) have established a social responsibility policy that is based on the UN Sustainable Development Goals. The global goals were approved by the representatives of all UN member states in September 2015. Reference is made to the goals in the fisheries social responsibility policy. 

Their policy will be reviewed on a regular basis. The representative of a company that signs the policy is responsible for ensuring that it is adhered to.

Life Below Water

Maintaining healthy fish stocks and ensuring that information on fishing and the treatment of marine ecosystems is reliable, traceable and transparent is of great economic and social importance for the Icelandic nation. Proper and responsible treatment of natural resources is vital for ensuring that fish stocks in Icelandic waters continue to be sustainably harvested.

Increased greenhouse gas emissions have led to climate change and global warming. The ocean absorbs more heat and warms up, which in turn affects ocean currents and living conditions in the sea. The sea, moreover, absorbs large proportions of man-made carbon dioxide and this leads to the acidification of the ocean. Climate conditions, therefore, are a threat to fisheries in the Arctic region as well as elsewhere on our planet.
Fisheries Iceland wish to strengthen research into ocean ecology and marine chemistry and thus improve understanding of the effects of warming and acidification of the sea and plastic pollution on marine life.

Innovation and development

Innovation and investment are an important requisite for success in environmental matters. Innovation, moreover, lays the foundation for valuable jobs in the fisheries sector and related industries. This in turn lays the groundwork for continued development and achievement in environmental matters. The Icelandic fishing industry will continue to participate in these efforts. Innovation creates opportunities that no one can foresee, and therefore Fisheries Iceland will continue to analyse such opportunities, take advantage of data and invest in means and solutions for continued improvement.


Circular economy

Fisheries Iceland use ocean resources in a sustainable and legal manner. They seek to create value from all raw materials and ensure that all waste that they produce at sea is returned to land in accordance with rules on the disposal of waste from vessels at sea as provided for in Marpol Annex V
  • Fisheries Iceland seek to sort all waste generated at sea and on land and ensure that waste fishing gear is sent for recycling.
    • By recycling and reusing, they seek to create value from waste generated from the operation of our companies. All waste generated at sea, such as fishing gear, plastics, waste oil, lubricants, packaging, metal and glass, is brought back on land and sorted to the extent possible. 
    • They promote education on the recycling of fishing gear and make sure that their own waste fishing gear is cleaned, sorted and sent for recycling.
    • They do their part to help clean up the sea by delivering to port all ocean litter brought up by our nets.
  • They ensure the traceability of their products.

Minimising our carbon footprint 

The policy of fisheries companies is to measure and assess the emission of greenhouse gases and to use opportunities to limit and reduce environmental impact in accordance with technological developments. Fisheries Iceland supports the development and application of environmentally friendly technology, both at sea and on land. 
They seek to minimise their carbon footprint by: 
  • measuring their carbon footprint
  • reducing emissions even further
  • offsetting and binding carbon

Energy use and switching to alternative energy sources 

Fisheries Iceland seek ways to reduce the use of fossil fuels: 
  • When constructing new vessels, they focus on efficient energy use and environmental concerns from the outset.
  • They try to identify opportunities to reduce the use of fossil fuels and increase the share of eco-friendly energy sources that are realistic and economically viable.
  • As opportunities arise, they switch from HFC refrigerants to others that do not cause greenhouse effects. Furthermore, when commissioning new vessels, they focus on eco-friendly refrigerants.
