Omega-3 and omega-6 in our diet

Our bodies need both omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids. The Western diet is generally dominated by omega-6 fatty acids.

Omega-3 fatty acids

There are two main types of dietary omega-3 fatty acids.

Omega-6 fatty acids

Omega-6 fatty acids are mainly found in plants and farm animals. Vegetable oils such as soya oil, corn oil and sunflower oil have a particularly high omega-6 content.

Still a good source of marine omega-3 fatty acids

Although the levels of marine omega-3 in fish feed have decreased, farmed salmon is still a good source of these important nutrients.

Plan ingredients in fish feed

Research shows that as long as the nutritional requirements of the fish are met, it is safe to replace the traditional marine ingredients fishmeal and fish oil with plant protein and vegetable oils.

Omega-6 weakens the fish skeleton

High content of omega-6 in fish-feed may lead to weaker bone and skeletal development.

Seafood may prevent postpartum depression

A high level of marine omega-3 fatty acids in the blood in the final stages of pregnancy can reduce the risk of postpartum depression.
