In this session, major algae and seed oil manufacturers will discuss the latest research and production techniques that enable algae and terrestrial plants to provide the desired omega-3 fatty acid profiles that rival traditional fish oils.
The webinar will be hosted by Dr. Kevin Fitzsimmons, Chair of the F3 Challenge and Professor and Director of International Programs at the University of Arizona, moderates and features success stories on fish oil replacement from top algae and seed oil producers.
Aquaculture needs new, more sustainable sources of omega-3 rich DHA and EPA to meet global seafood demand. Macro and microalgae strains as well as genetically modified plants such as rapeseed and camelina are quickly establishing themselves as more readily available and safe omega-3 supply chains for the fish feed and human nutrition sectors.
