Fish oil challenge webinars scheduled

17 January 2018, at 2:30pm

An invitation to companies interested in the Fish Oil Challenge to join one of two upcoming webinars explaining the $100,000 contest has been issued today.

The goal of the F3 Fish Oil Challenge is to accelerate the availability of cost-competitive, viable alternatives to fish oil that provide the essential nutritional components for fish and at the same time help reduce demand for wild-caught fish for fish feed and enhance food security.

The discussions will include explanations of a new change to the product criteria and how to participate as a company or team, as well as providing the chance for F3 to answer any questions related to the contest.

A cash prize of over $100,000 will be awarded to the company or team that makes and sells the greatest amount of the long-chain omega-3 fatty acids DHA, plus EPA, plus ARA – as calculated from their sales of fish-free lipids to aquaculture producers or fish-feed makers during the challenge. Registration for the contest closes on 30 April.
