Our Take: While climate change and El Niño play significantly into Chilean and Peruvian coastal waters having less cold-water upwelling nutrients, large-scale commercial harvesting of the forage fish that sea lions rely on to survive cannot help!
How Ahiflower Helps: Ahiflower oil is a “pro-EPA” omega-rich dietary oil. Human clinical science shows that Ahiflower oil converts to the same omega-3 EPA found in fish oil far more efficiently than traditional plant-based omegas like flaxseed oil. On average, Ahiflower oil’s EPA equivalency per gram is about half that of fish oil. This means that people seeking omega-3 EPA benefits from fish oil have a clean-tasting and efficient vegetarian alternative with Ahiflower oil. If millions of fish oil consumers globally switched to Ahiflower oil—which is grown sustainably by independent farmers in the Ahiflower Growers Club—starving sea lions will have a chance to recover and more critical forage fish will be available to nursing mothers.
