Congratulations to TerraVia and Bunge Oils for their AlgaPrime™ DHA aquaculture feed ingredient, recipient of the Global Aquaculture Alliance’s (GAA) fifth annual Global Aquaculture Innovation Award, sponsored by Preferred Freezer Services.
The AlgaPrime™ DHA aquaculture feed ingredient has been manufactured at a facility in Brazil since 2014, running off the steam generated by a sugarcane mill, as part of a joint venture with Bunge Oils (operating as SB Oils). The microalgae is fermented, converting sugars into oils and other ingredients. Already being used by a farmed salmon producer in Chile, AlgaPrime is a perfect complement to traditional aquaculture feed ingredients that will enrich the fish’s omega-3 fatty acid levels.
TerraVia was founded as Solazyme in 2003, producing microalgae for use in fuels and chemicals before refocusing on human and animal nutrition and personal care products. The company is based in South San Francisco, California.
