VSV works closely with Icelandic regulations to make sure we’re adhering to quotas. Thanks to The Icelandic Fishery Management System, we receive detailed and traceable reports of all fishing trips. If you’re interested, you can view any of our trips here.

Our modern vessels and short distances to and from our fishing grounds ensure that we fish in a responsible and sustainable manner, and mean our carbon footprint is very low. As for our fishing technique, our fishermen use the appropriate trawlers, nets and other equipment for the most sustainable means of catching.

Our MSC and IRF certifications are proof of our dedication to sustainable fishing.


The Marine Stewardship Council (MSC) is an international non-profit organisation addressing the problem of unsustainable fishing and safeguarding seafood supplies for the future. MSC is a certificate for fishing companies, like VSV, that help in the effort towards keeping oceans healthy and full of life.

VSV lives up to the standards for sustainable fishing and seafood traceability set by MSC. This means our fish can be traced back to their fishing grounds. The requirements of MSC meet global best practice for certification and ecolabelling programmes.


An Iceland Responsible Fisheries certificate confirms that our fish are caught in Icelandic waters and are caught in line with responsible fisheries management and good treatment of marine resources. The stamp makes it easy for stakeholders to spot products with an Icelandic origin that have been caught responsibly.

VSV is proud to be IRF certified by sourcing responsibly in the North Atlantic along the shores of Iceland.
