Global demand for omega-3 long-chain fatty acids – especially DHA – in aquaculture, human, and animal nutrition markets is growing rapidly. And for years, humans have farmed fish to create oil to feed fish. The time has come for a more sustainable solution.
As the original source of marine DHA, algae can help reduce our dependency on fish oil in aquaculture and support animal, ocean, and human health more sustainably. Produced using proprietary fermentation technology, AlgaPrime™ DHA has become the world's leading source of algae-based DHA ingredients for aquaculture, production, and companion animals.
AlgaPrime™ DHA supports animal health while addressing the crucial supply gap with an abundant, sustainable, and healthy aquaculture solution.
It's no surprise that DHA ingredients are in demand; numerous scientific studies have demonstrated the benefits of long-chain omega-3s for human brain, eye, and heart health. Many countries now actively encourage their populations to eat oily fish to ensure sufficient DHA in their diets.
Now there is also growing evidence that omega-3s support these same benefits in animals and contribute to a healthy diet for a wide range of aquaculture, production, and companion animals.
To maximize omega-3 content, fish must consume DHA themselves. That's where Corbion plays an enabling role by supplying sustainable microalgae directly to the global aquaculture sector.
Historically, the aquaculture industry has depended on a long and complex supply chain, starting with microalgae and involving plankton, sea fishing, and oil extraction, in order to feed fish oil to fish. But with AlgaPrime™, essential DHA is obtained from algae that we grow sustainably ourselves through fermentation and supply directly to aquaculture businesses.
For both shrimp and salmon farmers, AlgaPrime™ DHA delivers multiple benefits:
The higher levels of omega-3s generated by AlgaPrime™ DHA support salmon health and provide important nutrition for consumers. DHA-rich algae can also contribute to better pigmentation and higher retention of omega-3s in the fillet.
With a history of groundbreaking R&D in algae strain development and fermentation excellence, Corbion is now the world's leading producer of algal DHA. Our research team has spent decades screening thousands of algae strains to identify the most productive, efficient, appealing, and nutritious types in order to meet your growing needs.
