Fishmeal and fish oil


Fishmeal and fish oil are valuable marine ingredients used mainly for aquaculture, human consumption or animal feeds.


Fishmeal and fish oil provide a balanced amount of all essential amino acids, minerals, phospholipids and omega-3 fatty acids (DHA and EPA).


Our products help bring the important omega 3 fatty acids in to the human food chain.


On a global level, Europe is producing 10% of the world´s fishmeal and 20% of the world´s fish oil.
