Aquaterra is the world’s first land-based source of long chain omega-3 fatty acids, derived from Nuseed Omega-3 Canola. Designed specifically for aquafeed, Aquaterra is an excellent complement to fish nutrition, providing DHA+EPA and ALA, Aquaterra delivers enhanced production performance by elevating the omega-3 levels needed for higher-quality nutritious fish.

Just 2 hectares of Nuseed Omega-3 Canola produces as much DHA as 10,000 kg of wild fish. Including Aquaterra in feed formulations decreases Fish in Fish Out ratios (FIFO) and Foraged Fish Dependency Ratios oil (FFDRo) while increasing the total omega-3 in the fillet. Aquaterra has the power to double the world’s supply of DHA on a small fraction current canola fields.
Aquaterra is an innovation in feed nutrition, serving as a partial replacement for fish oils and vegetable oils. The Aquaterra diet remains Iso energetic, Iso protein, and can achieve the same EPA+DHA levels as the standard diet. The unique omega-3 profile i...

Aquaterra is an innovation in feed nutrition, serving as a partial replacement for fish oils and vegetable oils. The Aquaterra diet remains Iso energetic, Iso protein, and can achieve the same EPA+DHA levels as the standard diet. The unique omega-3 profile increases total omega-3 in the fillet and improves health outcomes while reducing fish oil dependency.

Aquaterra is produced under the highest standards of traceability and responsible biotech stewardship, as certified by Excellence Through Stewardship. This requires detailed chain of custody records throughout the entire production, from soil to oil.
Salmon consumers are passionate about traceability, and ETS provide certainty that Aquaterra Omega-3 is pure and meets high standards for quality. Our logistics team coordinates all aspects of the supply chain from seed production to international shipments of finished oil, supply our current customer demand.

Friend of the Sea is the aquacultures industry’s most trusted certifier of responsible seafood and omega-3 production. Aquaterra underwent an in-depth audit of agricultural and processing methods and earned Friend of the Sea certification – their first for a biotechnology product.

Aquaterra created a scalable supply of long-chain omega-3 nutrition with sophisticated plant-to-plant biotechnology. Microalgae are unicellular aquatic plants with the incredible ability to transform sunshine into long-chain polyunsaturated fatty acids (LC-PUFA). Adding seven microalgae genes to canola provides the pathway to produce LC-PUFA including DHA+EPA in a sustainable, land-based crop.
