Algae-based omega-3 oil changes the game

Did you know that 20% of all the fish caught in the world is used to feed…other fish? Meanwhile, some three billion people in the world rely on fish from our oceans for protein and nutrition; and many millions more benefit from the rich omega-3 fatty acids found in fish oil supplements – which are beneficial to human brain, eye and heart health.

Algae-based omega-3 oil changes the game. The innovative and sustainable sourcing of essential omega 3 and 6 fatty acids from algae for ensuring health and optimum growth in aqua-cultured species.

Veramaris®: an algae-based answer

Nutritionists agree the omega-3 fatty acids are essential but neither humans nor salmon are able to synthesize omega-3 in sufficient quantities – hence the need for these essential nutrients to be supplemented in the diet to maintain healthy growth.

Veramaris is an algae-based oil launched in 2018 that provides the first viable alternative to fish oil for this valuable source of omega-3.

Farmed in giant lakes, Veramaris has a high (50%) concentration of the key fatty acids needed to feed farmed salmon and maintain their health – and its significance is best summarized by the fact that just one metric tonne of Veramaris algal oil is the equivalent of 60 tonnes of wild-caught fish.
