Demeter is growing brine shrimp for important macronutrients and feed components!
Demeter Biosciences has discovered how to farm all stages of brine shrimp life using sustainable microalgae. Brine shrimp biomass is rich in valuable carotenoids, amino acids (methionine and lysine), protein, and omega-3 fatty acids like DHA and EPA. These nutrients are valuable as raw materials for animal feeds.
Adult and juvenile brine shrimp biomass can be converted into a fish meal for fish and animal feeds. The product currently in development would be a mercury-free, sustainable, and cost-effective fish meal.
