Algae-based omega-3s provide traceable and sustainable feed ingredients for responsibly farmed shrimp.

AlgaPrime™ DHA Completes Successful Trial with Thai Union in Shrimp Feed

  (THAILAND, 6/13/2019)

Corbion, a global market leader in algae-based food and feed ingredients, has announced at the SeaWeb Seafood Summit that AlgaPrime™ DHA has been successfully trialed in shrimp feed from global seafood producer Thai Union Group PCL. AlgaPrime™ DHA is the leading sustainably produced, algae-based source of long-chain omega-3s, globally recognized for improving omega-3 traceability and reducing the fish-in fish-out ratio of farmed seafood. 

"Our new opportunity with Thai Union demonstrates our continued commitment to sustainability," said Chris Haacke, Global Aquaculture Lead at Corbion. "Shrimp farming is one of the fastest growing sectors in the aquaculture industry, and AlgaPrime™ DHA has the potential to offer shrimp farmers assurance in traceability and sustainability of their feed, while also allowing them to add beneficial omega-3s to their product."

AlgaPrime DHA is an alternative source of omega-3 to reduce dependency on marine fisheries and fish oil.

Shrimp farming currently consumes approximately 100,000 tons of fish oil annually, predominantly because fish oil contains DHA, a key ingredient in shrimp growth and development. Global demand for omega-3s, such as DHA, is growing rapidly, but the availability of omega-3s from their current source – wild caught fish – is limited.

Since 2016, Corbion has been producing AlgaPrime™ DHA at large industrial scale relevant to the needs of the aquaculture industry.  Developed to reduce dependency on marine fisheries and provide a new source of long-chain omega-3s for the aquaculture industry, AlgaPrime™ DHA is a native, whole algae ingredient that contains approximately three times the level of DHA of fish oil. AlgaPrime™ DHA is a clean ingredient, sustainably produced through fermentation with non-GM cane sugar as a feedstock.

"At Thai Union, our SeaChange® sustainability strategy drives meaningful improvements across the entire global seafood industry, especially when it comes to traceable and responsible sourcing," said Darian McBain, Global Director of Corporate Affairs and Sustainability at Thai Union.

"By working with Corbion, we are progressing our goal to bring even more responsibly sourced and sustainably harvested shrimp to market."

Darian McBain.

While at the SeaWeb Seafood Summit, Chris Haacke and Darian McBain will both be participating in the "Innovation in Action: The Journey Toward Incorporating Novel Feed Ingredients and Engaging Consumers" panel on Thursday, June 13th at 10:30 a.m. During this panel, Haacke, McBain and other representatives from leading aquaculture companies will discuss the challenges and opportunities associated with incorporating innovative ingredients into feed, and communicating this innovation to consumers.
