Coriander Oil: An Inexpensive Way To Boost Omega 3 Fatty Acids In Farmed Fish

August 14, 2013: 12:00 AM EST
Omega 3 fatty acids like EPA and DHA are already well known as healthy compounds, prevalent in oily fish and other foods. Now Canadian researchers have found a way to make farmed fish like trout even healthier without increasing the cost. Instead of feeding the fish expensive – and increasingly scarce –  fish oils, they found that feeding rainbow trout coriander oil increased the bioconversion of alpha-linoleic acid to EPA and DHA – and increased the concentrations of the fatty acids – without negative effects on the health or growth of the fish.
