Marine Functional Foods Research

The Marine Institute co-funds Nutra Mara along with  DAMF (€5.2m). NutraMara is defining novel food ingredients and developing value-added functional food products from marine sources.

This applied research programme, built on the back of industry inputs, is targeting fish processing rest raw materials, waste streams and under-utilised species of fish and algae and finfish and shellfish aquaculture in search of novel food ingredients.
