Ocean Titans Film Series – Shining a Spotlight on Nuseed Omega-3 Canola

Documentary Highlighting Nuseed Omega-3 Canola

The World Ocean Council (WOC) has teamed up with Special Interest Films to create a film series shining a spotlight on trailblazers in ocean sciences and industries. The Ocean Titans series endeavors to showcase organizations dedicated to preserving and nurturing healthy ocean environments for future generations, all the while promoting the growth of responsible and environmentally conscious businesses.

Nuseed was chosen in 2023 for inclusion in this series due to the Aquaterra Advanced Omega-3 technology, an exclusive omega-3 oil derived from Nuseed Omega-3 Canola. This agricultural innovation utilizes biotechnology to generate the nutritional benefits of microalgae within sustainable canola crops.

The eight-minute film is now accessible on YouTube as part of an Ocean Titans episode titled “Producing Sustainable Plant-Based Omega-3”. The film sheds light on Nufarm’s dedication to innovation and delves into the narrative behind Nuseed’s creation of Aquaterra, the world’s first land-based provider of longchain omega-3 fatty acids.

The Power of Omega-3 Canola

Omega-3 Canola currently represents a niche market, but its significance is growing, particularly in the face of climate change, says Mark Jackson, General Manager for Nuseed Americas.

“The recent cancellation of the anchovy season in Peru is just one example underscoring the urgency for alternatives, as traditional sources from the ocean are dwindling. This is an area where we’ve identified a sustained growth trajectory,” he says. (More information on the cancelled anchovy season in Peru in the 2024 issue of SUCCEED.)

“That’s one of the reasons why the product was brought to the marketplace. We are now helping to sustain that industry, allowing it to grow beyond previous limitations. This trait Nuseed has developed for its Omega-3 Canola brings long-chain fatty acids, including the crucial omega-3 DHA for brain function and health, into a land-based plant for the first time. It’s a real achievement.”

Jackson further emphasizes the positive impact on Nuseed’s contracted growers, noting that Nuseed’s Omega-3 Canola Production System enables the farmer to use their land to bolster sustainability.

“We’ve got great genetics, yields are improving, and the plant is fantastic. In regions like Montana, where canola isn’t traditionally grown, we integrate it into the rotation, improving the overall
rotation health,” he says.

“It’s a unique approach that leverages traditional assets in a market that, while looking like a commodity market, is anything but. It not only benefits fish health but also human health.”
