Overview: 

Aquaculture Feed from Microalgae: Fish Food That Isn’t Fishy

Commercial aquaculture represents the fastest-growing food production industry in the world. Traditional fishmeal used in aquaculture is expensive, in limited supply and drives up commercial costs. Microalgal biomass contains all the essential nutrients for fish growth and may be used as a nutritionally superior alternative to fishmeal. Our algae-based fish feed represents a high quality, sustainable, low-cost feed that can reduce the costs of commercial aquaculture.
