happy 2013 - GMO free

One of the most exciting developments in 2012 was our work on fish fed with olive pomace (OP) and how this OP-fed fish compares to FO (fish oil) fish.
Well, here are some results.

[more to follow in 2013]
Merry Christmas to all of you!
May 2013 bring Excellence in Science and breaking-through innovations for producing Nutritious and Tasteful Food, affordable by all!
