BlueOcean NutraSciences Inc. is a Canadian public listed company (TSXV:BOC) whose mission is to develop effective, innovative and sustainable products from Natural Sources, to improve the lives of its customers. BlueOcean’s first specialty ingredient is its patent protected shrimp oil which is the base for its current three consumer brands. Shrimp oil is made from sustainably certified North Atlantic coldwater shrimp shells (the by-product of the cooked and peeled shrimp process) and contains phospholipid bound omega-3 fatty acids and over 40 times more natural astaxanthin compared to krill oil ingredients.
Shrimp oil’s unique nutritional properties enables the ingredient to make numerous health claims across a wide range of markets, including the $4Bn omega-3 heart health market, the $9Bn joint health market and the $10Bn sports supplement market. BlueOcean markets its shrimp oil ingredient through a number of consumer brands that are formulated to target these specific markets.
