Friend of the Sea (FoS)

Friend of the Sea (FoS) was founded in 2005 on the initiative of Paolo Bray, the European Director of the worldwide Dolphin Safe label. Friend of the Sea is an international non-profit and non-governmental organisation (NGO), which advocates the protection and health of the world’s oceans with great dedication and commitment. This also includes promoting a sustainable orientation in the areas of fishing and fish farming. For this purpose, the FoS standard was developed as an own certification system and the blue-red Friend of the Sea seal established as an international consumer label. The FoS standard is the only standard that covers sustainable fishing as well as sustainable aquaculture.
