Marine phytoplankton is the foundation of life in the ocean. It has been created by nature and has been a keystone element of nutrition forever since. On land, the air we breathe is primarily provided by the oxygen that is produced by marine phytoplankton through photosynthesis.
Marine phytoplankton is found in all oceans around the world but thrives in the waters of the Strait of Georgia on the east coast of Vancouver Island in British Columbia, Canada. The pristine waters of the Strait offer a unique marine environment, like no other in the world. The water from snowmelt in the mountains of Western Canada provides a high content of minerals and nutrients contributing to an abundant and diverse production of marine phytoplankton. This area is among the most biologically productive marine ecosystems in the world for phytoplankton, fish, aquatic plants and mammals. We source MARPHYL® Marine Phytoplankton from this body of water.
