How would you describe your solution in a few words?

A sustainable supply of Omega 3 as an alternative to wild catch fish to enable a growing aquaculture industry




Who are your customers? 

Aquaculture Feed Producers in Chile, Australia, Norway, France, Denmark, Italy, USA, Ecuador, India, Thailand, UK

What are the environmental benefits of your solution? 

The solution provides an immediate positive impact on the world’s wild fish stocks. 16 million tons of wild fish – almost 20% of the global fish catch are caught and processed into fish oil and fishmeal to feed farmed fish. Overfishing has placed extreme pressure on wild fish stocks – the main cause for biodiversity loss in our oceans. Veramaris solution is an immediate substitute for fish oil, meaning that fish can remain in the ocean.
