This signal has appeared on two fronts:
Spotted by James Goodman on aquaculture:
“People want omega 3 in the food they eat but a chief source of this is wild-capture fish. Developing feed that doesnt rely on wild-capture fish is key to scaling sustainable protein production including sustainable aquaculture. This “highly concentrated algal oil will enable the animal nutrition industry to keep up with the increasing demand for two essential omega-3 fatty acids without endangering fish stocks, said the companies.””
AN alternative source of omega-3 produced from marine algae has been described as a breakthrough for the aquaculture and pet food sectors. A joint venture between Royal DSM and Evonik was announced today and the companies plan to build a commercial scale production facility in the United States.
