Recent studies show that Superior Aquaculture’s (SA’s) “In Pond Floating Raceway Systems” (IPFRS) can potentially increase the omega-3 content of many farmed fish by about 50%. This follows on the heels of a recent study by Stirling University that reveals that, “…the amount of omega-3 fatty acid (an anti-oxidant) in farmed salmon in the UK has decreased by 50% in the past 10 years”.
This means that consumers would now need to consume twice as much salmon to obtain the same amount of omega-3’s as they did 10 years ago. The cause is linked to less fish and more pro-inflammatory soybeans in commercial fish feeds.
SA’s system allows for capture and feeding of live, wild, omega-3 rich, zooplankton and phytoplankton while reducing the fertility of the surrounding water. Plankton processing can yield massive amounts of high-value nutrients and oils for a wide array of human health and animal feed supplements. Reader inquiries are welcomed.
