TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwired - Dec. 22, 2015) - BlueOcean NutraSciences (TSX VENTURE:BOC) ("BlueOcean" or the "Company"), a nutraceutical Company focused on developing specialty oils and extended release (XR) Omega-3 and Astaxanthin tablets from shrimp, fish, krill and algae oil for Health and Wellness markets, is pleased to announce that yesterday it received its first commercial purchase order for bulk Northern AstaShrimpTM oil, bulk Pacific AstaShrimpTM oil and newly added bulk Pacific Plus AstaShrimpTM oil, from a Canadian nutraceutical company. The order terms include delivery on or before March 31, 2016 for each product and is cancellable for 30 days.

This is BlueOcean's first bulk shrimp oil order since the Company began assessing commercial potential in March 2013 to produce high value omega-3 and astaxanthin shrimp oil from the shells of Marine Stewardship Council (MSC) certified shrimp sourced from Newfoundland based shrimp processors and shrimp shells sourced from South Pacific Ocean shrimp fisheries. With the various AstaShrimpTM product specifications and commercial extraction capacity finalized earlier this year, customers such as the current one and additional customers that BlueOcean has been working with for the past two years are anticipated to begin placing orders for the 2016 North Atlantic shrimp season and the remainder of the current South Pacific shrimp season.

BlueOcean has now commenced sales of both bulk shrimp oil, as well as its own retail brand of omega-3 shrimp oil products called Pure PolarTM Omega-3 Shrimp Oil which are available online at, and is now also available at
