Since its release last month, Netflix documentary Seaspiracy has spurred polarizing global debate about the environmental impacts of commercial fishing. Responses have ranged from heated industry rebuttals to celebrity endorsements and a growing consumer base pledging to stop eating fish. Few, if any, are taking a seat on the fence.
On March 24, Canada’s Ocean Supercluster announced three new projects with a total value of almost $10 million from its Accelerated Ocean Solutions Program (AOSP) including the Fishless Marine Microbial Fish Oil Project. This Nova Scotia-led project will work to develop an algal nutritional oil that fully mimics and complements the health benefits of fish oil consumption.
"Algarithm Ingredients is extremely fortunate to play a small role in supporting this project. We are looking forward to introducing a flavorless and odourles fish-free omega-3 DHA & EPA algal oil solution to the market in the not-too-distant future. Congratulations to Roberto Armenta and the Mara Renewables Corporation team on securing this project and funding!" - Ben Kelly, Co-founder and Managing Partner at Algarithm Ingredients.
Algarithm, an algal Omega-3 producer committed to sustainable practices and sensory performance, undertook a thorough supply chain and processing review in search of new production opportunities. The result is a highly sustainable line of algal Omega-3 concentrates that challenge quality standards within the industry and address growing demand for higher potency vegan Omega-3 ingredients.
We’re excited to share the news that Algarithm was chosen as the DHA supplier for CatchFreeTM Omega, a new plant-based Omega-3 product from Wiley’s Finest.
This past December, we decided to devote our team building day to the service of others and our community. Winters in Saskatchewan are very harsh, and local shelters struggle to keep up with the demand for basic necessities. In an effort to ease the burden we decided to launch Socks & Sammies Day — a single day devoted to teamwork and giving back at the local level while having fun. In total, we donated 200 pairs of warm socks and 200 homemade sandwiches to The Lighthouse Supported Living.
