A new study led by scientists at Hubbs-SeaWorld Research Institute (HSWRI) in San Diego, California, showed that omega-3-rich algae oil can successfully replace fish oil in the diet of farm-raised juvenile California yellowtail (Seriola dorsalis) without compromising growth or survival. The results also revealed that algae oil can produce fish with levels of two important omega-3 fatty acids—DHA and EPA—roughly three times higher than in fish fed fish oil.
