Ventisqueros Salmon to be Raised on Feed Made with Algae

  (CHILE, 4/27/2017)

Chilean salmon farmer Ventisqueros – a boutique salmon producer in north Patagonia – in collaboration with Danish feed producer BioMar Group announced it will begin using salmon feed containing AlgaPrime™ DHA to produce a Premium Pacific Salmon (Oncorhynchus kisutch or Coho) with unprecedented sustainability benefits.

Silverside addresses the issue of finding a new, sustainable way for farming salmon with a new diet that includes Alga-Prime DHA, an algae-meal based product that reduces the fish oil requirement to maintain high levels of Omega-3 fatty acids.

BioMar´s Omega Technology incorporates a sustainable source of omega-3s, AlgaPrime™ DHA, which is responsible for the product’s industry low FFDR (Forage Fish Dependency Ratio) of 0.5 kilograms in Ventisqueros’ Silverside™ Premium Pacific Salmon. FFDR is a metric used to evaluate how many kilograms of wild fish are needed to produce one kilo of farmed fish. The current industry average FFDR is about 1.3 kg.

“By achieving this figure, we have become the first “net fish producers” in the salmon farming industry,” said José Luis Vial, CEO of Ventisqueros,

"S.A. AlgaPrime™ DHA is an important ingredient in this innovative feed formulated by BioMar creating an entirely new product offering and value proposition that we’re excited to provide to our customers,” says Vial.

“We are very excited see this type of development in the Chilean industry aiming to cover the new trends in sustainable products in the market, all the more when we are acting as a catalyst of it”, said Eduardo Hagedorn Managing Director BioMar Chile.

AlgaPrime™ DHA is currently being made by TerraVia and Bunge at their SB Renewable Oils joint venture facility in Brazil.

Representing a step change to current industry solutions, the algae is grown in closed fermentation tanks in just days and offers consistent supply and quality to customers. Based on sugarcane feedstock, AlgaPrime™ DHA has a lower carbon and water footprint and higher yield per hectare than DHA produced from most other non-marine sources.

“Microalgae is the original source of omega-3 fatty acids in the food chain and can now be produced in an effective and highly sustainable way,” said Manuel Cabezas, Feed & Feeding Director of Ventisqueros, S.A.

"AlgaPrime™ DHA goes straight to the original source, offering a fully traceable and consistent source omega-3s. “Silverside™ Premium Pacific Salmon is both BAP 4 Star and ASC certified – so it’s critical that all feed ingredients included BioMar are made sustainably and responsibly,” added Cabezas.

Silverside is an exceptionally sustainable premium farmed salmon with great color and excellent taste.
