Arctic Ruby Oil is the U.S. brand name for the dietary supplement calanus oil, according to its manufacturer Immunocorp. Calanus oil is harvested from tiny copepods called Calanus finmarchicus living in the Atlantic Ocean around Norway, says Calanus AS, the Norwegian biomarine company established to harvest the sea creatures.

Arctic Ruby Oil is high in omega-3, according to Immunocorp.
