Entire ocean ecosystems are in decline due to overfishing. Fish oil derived omega-3 is a major contributor to the problem. DSM's unique life's™ Portfolio is algal-sourced, so it's part of the solution the planet needs. If the world were to switch to 100% algal-sourced omega-3, it would mean 22 million tonnes of fish would be saved every year.
