Kinkawooka is a Friend of the Sea, and is recognised by the International Seafood Sustainability organisation, Friend of the Sea.

Products and their origins are audited onsite by independent international certification bodies, against strict Friend of the Sea sustainability criteria.

Friend of the Sea Criteria follow the FAO – Guidelines for the Ecolabelling of Fish and Fishery Products from Marine Capture Fisheries. In particular, only products from stocks which are NOT OVEREXPLOITED can be certified (Art. 30 FAO Guidelines).

Friend of the Sea has deployed an International Monitoring Program to verify onsite the Chain of Custody of approved suppliers of Friend of the Sea products.

In line with the FAO Guidelines, Friend of the Sea pricing structure is affordable also to artisanal fisheries and small-scale producers, which represent over 50% of the Friend of the Sea certified products.
