Aker BioMarine utilizes its unique krill harvesting methods to develop its own downstream operations within the high value added nutraceutical and aquaculture feed markets.

Krill derived products, such as krill oil and meal, have a high content of bioactive ingredients, e.g. Omega-3 bound phospholipids, choline and astaxanthin, which have documented positive effects on both humans and animals.

Market Opportunities in Krill Oil

18 May 2017 --- Aker BioMarine recently reported how the company managed to grow sales and improve operations in the still-challenging omega-3 market, and continues to heavily invest in new technology and the development of new krill-derived products. Matts Johansen, CEO of Aker BioMarine, is satisfied with the result, but admitted that 2016 was still a challenging year for the company. Johansen said. “Although 2016 was a good year for Aker BioMarine, we posted slightly negative earnings after tax. The investments needed to build a supply chain for krill-based products, the resources needed to innovate and document their biological effects, and the time needed to develop new markets are reflected in our earnings.”
