The scientists believe the level of omega-3 in the salmon we eat is determined by a combination of the salmon’s genes and the feed it eats.
There is less omega-3 in the fillet when salmon are fed plant-based feed. However, the scientists know that salmon have a certain capacity to convert omega-3 fatty acids from plant oil to marine omega-3. They will now receive help from the salmon’s genes to increase this capacity.

Global reserves of phosphorus, however, are limited, and industries that depend on this mineral must increase their use of current sources. An unexploited gold mine of phosphorus for the aquaculture industry is available in filleting waste.
