Derived from the tissues of oily fish, fish oil is taken as a general health supplement as a source of omega3 fatty acids. Fish oil is commonly used to refer to two types of omega-3 fatty acids – docosahexaenoic
acid and eicosapentaenoic acid. Fish oil is the recommended source of omega-3 fatty acids due to its easy
availability and low cost.
Omega-3 fatty acids are essential fats that are needed for normal body functioning. Flax seed, fish, and
algae are the common sources of omega-3 fatty acids, of which fish oil is a major commercially available
source. Thus, increasing awareness regarding the health benefits of omega-3 fatty acids, which has in turn
resulted in increasing direct human consumption (DHC) of fish oils, is driving the global fish oil market. On
the contrary, stagnated production of fish oil is detrimental to this market’s growth.
By application, aquaculture, direct human consumption, and others including industrial uses and
hydrogenation are the segments of this market....
