Krill oil supplier Rimfrost (Fosnavaag, Norway) has secured a second license to harvest krill in Antarctic waters. The license was issued by the Norwegian Directorate of Fisheries following an independent evaluation assessing Rimfrost’s ability to preserve the environment in Antarctica while harvesting, as well as the company’s krill-harvesting experience and financial health.

The company now operates two krill trawlers in Antarctica. “These vessels will be equipped with new, patented, and innovative solutions for harvesting and processing krill,” said Stig Remøy, the company’s CEO and owner, in a press release. He shared some of the company’s current goals. “In addition to the production of oil for human consumption, we will produce protein hydrolysates, protein powders, and expand into new areas such as [the] aquaculture feed market as well as the pet food market.”
