Varamaris Working to Replace Fish Oil

 Seagriculture EU 2024

“The problem with fish oil,” says Gertjan do Koning, CEO of Varamaris, “is that there simply isn’t enough of it. There’s no way we can get enough fish oil out of our oceans to meet the growing demand without unacceptable over-fishing. The world is screaming for fish oil alternatives.”

So Veramaris went back to the primary source for omega-3 oil and is now expanding access to sustainable omega-3 that’s rich in both EPA+DHA with the world’s first ASC-MSC-certified microalgae oil for fish and shrimp feed.

From their headquarters in Delft, Netherlands, to their advanced production facility in Blair, Nebraska, Veramaris collaborates with value chain partners to support the seafood industry from the scientist to the shopper.
