BioMar first introduced microalgae omega-3 into commercial salmon feeds in 2016 after three years of R&D and planning. BioMar worked with several salmon farmers and retailers willing to take a chance on microalgae, and today’s success is an excellent example of collaborating across the value chain.

BioMar brings focus to the blue journey towards increased sustainability

Knowledge of several critical environmental impact areas of aquafeeds is essential in helping make sustainable decisions. That is why some BioMar feeds in our Europe, Middle East & Africa (EMEA) Divisions will now include new sustainability indicators on technical product datasheets. This knowledge will help farmers in their pursuit to reduce negative environmental impacts.
