Fish Oil Production


Fish oil, a commonly used nutritional aid in the society, also known as Omega-3, is a highly beneficial nutrient that is used frequently.

Fish and fish oil have been used in animal feeding and aquaculture, as well as human consumption and industrial areas on a large scale for many years. The aquaculture sector consumes 74% of the global fish oil production. The leading countries in fish oil production are China, Thailand, Denmark, Norway, Morocco and Turkey.

A perfect source of energy, the fish oil contains high amounts of unsaturated fat acids (HUFA) and essential fat acids (EFA). The multiple unsaturated fat acids in the fish oil reduces the risk of heart disease, cardiac and vascular diseases and cancer-related deaths, prevents embolism and paralysis, reduces blood pressure and controls hypertension.

Not all fish contain Omega 3. In particular, salmon, mackerel, herring, anchovy and tuna are rich in Omega 3 content. The Omega 3 fat acids are higher in the fatty fish living in cold and deep waters. The fish oil produced by Karsusan using fresh anchovy is very rich in Omega 3.
