Kobyalar Group is world’s leader in DHA rich anchovy fish oil production. Kobyalar supplies only fresh fish oil to its customers. Fish oil is mainly used in human nutrition and as feed ingredient in aquaculture industries.

Kobyalar fish oil is produced from Black Sea anchovy by cooking, pressing and separation by centrifuges. Kobyalar fish oil is rich in DHA which is unique in the world.

Kobyalar produces fresh DHA rich fish oil. All the process is controlled under HACCP rules and hygienic conditions. It is very important to receive the raw material fresh, store at cold and hygienic conditions and on time to the production plant.

DHA rich Black Sea anchovy fish oil is produced from sustainable catched Black Sea anchovy ( Engraulis encrasicolus ). Anchovy is a pelagic type of fish and its body contains up to 10% fat. According to the fishing season fat content of anchovy varies.

Black Sea fish oil the best source of omega-3 fatty acids. Black sea fish oil is rich in DHA. It has a constant profile of EPA/DHA=10/20.


The plants can make their own carbohydrates, amino acids, fatty acids and vitamins from their surrounding supply of nitrogen, carbon dioxide, minerals and solar energy. These are essential for growth, development and function of healthy humans and animals.

When humans and animals eat plants, they can metabolize fatty acids by enzymes into highly unsaturated fatty acids such as Omega-3 and omega-6 acids.

Fish oil is rich in long chain omega-3 fatty acids. EicosaPentaenoic Acid (EPA 20:5 n-3) and DocosaHexaenoic Acid (DHA 22:6 n-3) are the two main long chain highly unsaturated omega-3 fatty acids. They are found most widely in marine environment where they are produced by algae. The algae are eaten by zooplankton. Zooplankton are eaten by fish and as a result fish oil contains EPA and DHA.

Fish oil is produced from small fatty pelagic fish such as anchovy, sardine; trimmings of edible fish, cod liver or other marine resources such as algae, krill etc. in the world. Peru and Chile are the largest producers of fish oil in the world. The quality of fish oil depends on the quality and handling of raw material. The fresher the raw material the fresher will be the end product.


Fish oil for human consumption is very important for the body. EPA supports the heart, immune system, and inflammatory response. DHA supports the brain, eyes, and central nervous system, which is why it is uniquely important for pregnant and lactating women.

  • Brain and nervous system development especially important at pregnancy development of infant.
  • Protection against cardiovascular disease and deaths from heart problems.
  • Rheumatoid arthritis.
  • Psychiatric disorders, including depression and schizophrenia.
  • Dementia & Alzheimer’s Disease.
  • Recovery from surgery.


Fish oil for aquaculture is also very important. Fish oil improves the immune systems of fish which will supply the fish resistance to illness.

  • Improved immunity.
  • Resistance to disease and recovery after illness.
  • Improved productivity through better growth and feed conversion.
  • Reduced feed costs due to high nutrition content.
