Sustainable Alaskan Fish caught by American Fishers and Purified by American Workers Wild Alaskan FishAll of their Wiley's Finest fish oils are sourced from sustainable, USA wild caught fish, caught by US registered vessels in American waters. Typically, about 95% or more of their fish oil is from Alaska Pollock, and about 5% or less of their fish oil is from Pacific Whiting.Alaska Pollock (Theragra chalcogramma) is a short-lived species of wild, coldwater fish. Pollock is a member of the cod family Gadidae. Their Alaska Pollock oil is sourced entirely from the Eastern Bering Sea and Gulf of Alaska populations solely found within U.S. waters. Alaska Pollock is considered to be the most well-managed, large-scale fishery in the world. Pacific Whiting is a member of the Merluccidae fish family and is MSC-certified as a sustainable source of seafood. Their Pacific Whiting comes from a U.S. wild capture fishery along the Oregon and Washington coast and is a minor component in some of their products.The ProcessUnlike many other sources of fish oil, Alaska Pollock is caught for human consumption. Fresh caught fish are filleted, frozen, and processed within hours onboard factory vessels or at shore plants. Then their fish oils are shipped from Alaska to their FDA registered manufacturing facility in Coshocton, Ohio in airtight oxygen barrier containers. At their Ohio refinery, they combine fish oil with food grade ethanol to make fatty acid ethyl esters. This allows Omega-3 fatty acids to be separated from saturated fatty acids that they don't want. Their cold extraction and further concentration results in up to 85% Omega-3 yield. They then use a molecular distillation process that removes fishy odors and taste, resulting in extremely fresh oil.Their final step is to carbon filter the fresh, concentrated Omega-3 fish oil to remove any PCB's, chlorinated organ pollutants, and toxic heavy metals. We then encapsulate their fish oil into easy-to-swallow softgels, bottle it up, and insert into post-consumer content product cartons. From start to finish, their ingredients are 100% US sourced, refined, and packaged by American workers. They are proud to say that they supply the finest 100% American made Omega-3 ingredients!
