Episode Notes

Shaun and Justin sit down with Karim Kurmaly, CEO of Veramaris, to discuss an up-and-coming innovation within the aquaculture industry: high-quality sustainable feed made from algal oil.

Veramaris produces omega-3 fatty acids for animal nutrition from microalgae. Our algal oil, a breakthrough innovation, helps conserve the natural biodiversity of our oceans – a vision shared by the scientists and engineers at our two parent companies, DSM and Evonik.

Veramaris produces algal oil through fermentation using only renewable resources. They use a waste-free process with minimal impact on the environment.
