Naturally, fish contains Omega 3 in its fat in varying amounts depending on the species. These unsaturated fatty acids are known to be beneficial to health, the best known being eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA). Fish do not synthesize unsaturated fatty acids themselves, but ingest microalgae and bacteria that contain and assimilate them. The microalgae are consumed by phytoplankton and shrimp, which in turn feed the fish. The benefits of these active ingredients are recognized for their anti-inflammatory and cardiovascular protective effects, as well as their benefits in cognitive development.
Omega 3 (EPA – DHA) have become increasingly important in various industries that now consume fish oils. However, the discovery of the importance of Omega 3 is very recent. In the past, fish oils were mainly used as a fuel, lubricant or for technical purposes. Even today, some fish oil is processed to be used in leather tanning.
The vast majority of the volumes are now used for aquaculture and animal feed. The oils with the best nutritional qualities are destined for human food in natural or concentrated form.
