Because of declining and fluctuating supply of wild-caught fish, new, more sustainable sources of omega-3-rich DHA and EPA are needed for aquaculture to meet the global demand for seafood. New production techniques are enabling algae and terrestrial plant farmers to create oils with desirable omega-3 fatty acid profiles that rival those of traditional fish oils. Both macro and microalgae strains, as well as genetically engineered plants such as canola and camelina, are quickly establishing themselves as more readily available and secure omega-3 supply chains for the fish feed and human nutrition sectors.
In this session, major algae and seed oil manufacturers will discuss their new healthy omegas, latest research, and fish oil replacement successes for their products.
