Innovative seaweed polysaccharides to support sustainable aquaculture
Since its foundation, Omix Group has mainly focused its research on macroalgae in order to use this unique resource to develop several programs and key solutions to the animal industry, including aquaculture. In fact, in the recent years the company has gone the extra mile to encourage sustainable aquaculture practices, specially thanks to the diverse use and properties of algae.
Algae are a source of carbohydrates, proteins, lipids, minerals, pigments, vitamins and secondary metabolites, and the diverse biological properties that they possess can be used to boost animals’ health and welfare. When it comes to shrimp farming, Olmix has developed several strategies to tackle issues such as feed conversion, growth performance and immunity. Again, extraction and identification are the keys to reveal their full potential.
