The Nuseed Nutritional Aquaterra Oil award is FOS’s first ever biotechnology certification. FOS says it delivers the nutritional benefits of microalgae through renewable canola and grows on existing arable land. The unique fatty acid profile improves production efficiency by increasing total omega-3 levels, which are needed for higher quality, more nutrient-rich fish.
According to Nuseed, when included in the Aquafeed oil blend, Aquaterra reduces the fish-in / fish-out (FIFO) ratio by up to 62 percent while improving Omega 3: Omega 6 and DHA: EPA ratios. It is the world’s first non-marine source of long-chain omega-3 fatty acids and has proven itself as a partial substitute for fish oil in animal feed.
