MySushi – Microalgae and Yeasts SUStainable fermentation for HIgh quality fish feed formulation

The goal of the project is to produce polyunsaturated fatty acids long-chain omega-3 (n-3 LCFAs) to be used in intensive fish farming to replace fish oil, which has become a limited oceanic resource and be increasingly expensive. MYSUSHI project will help develop technologies to cover a requirement of omega-3 which has now reached a deficiency worldwide by almost one million tons. The possibility of introducing in food chain new sources of omega-3, will enable greater availability of this valuable nutrient, essential in the human diet.
