A novel plant-based source of Omega-3


Omega-3 fatty acids are essential to human health, and are mainly sourced from wild caught fish. Those same fish are also an essential part of feeding farmed salmon as their own source of omega-3.  With increasing demands on the fishing industry globally, there is a pressing need for sustainably sourced omega-3 oils for human and salmon alike.


Benita Boettner, global general manager for Nuseed Nutritional,  discusses their omega-3 canola oil, and the potential of plant-based technologies to improve wellbeing of humans, fish, and the environment.
