"Nymega is a DHA-rich algae that provides a precision tool for targeting DHA levels in feed," said Len Smith, chief business officer at Heliae. "Nymega's simple profile allows formulators to target specific DHA content ... at a price that is finally affordable."

The product will be available early this year pending regulatory approval.

Washington-based Syndel develops aquaculture chemical and pharmaceutical products and Arizona-based Heliae is an algae production technology company.
