BlueOcean NutraSciences Inc. to Demo AlgaOmega(TM) Algae Production System at Arizona Center for Algae Technology and Innovation ("AzCATI")

TORONTO, ONTARIO -- (Marketwired) -- 07/02/14 -- BlueOcean NutraSciences Inc. ("BlueOcean") (TSX VENTURE:BOC) will demonstrate its algae production system at the Arizona Center for Algae Technology and Innovation ("AzCATI") located at Arizona State University ("ASU"). AzCATI is part of the ASU led AlgaeTestbed Public-Private Partnership (ATP3) and is recognized as the preeminent test facility for algae development and validation. The demonstration will provide third party validation on all production metrics. The demonstration is expected to be completed within the next 90 days.

AlgaOmega(TM) algae oil contains over 50% more EPA than competitor algae oils as well as a significant amount of DHA. This combination of high EPA and DHA uniquely positions AlgaOmega(TM) in the market place.

AlgaOmega(TM) is phototrophically produced utilizing a proprietary bio-reactor design that incorporates a patented hollow fiber CO2 infusion technology and light delivery system resulting in up to three (3) times more algae biomass production than competitor production systems.

"BlueOcean is pleased to be working with AzCATI to demo our algae production system. Having third party validation of our commercial production system by AzCATI will allow BlueOcean to complete our discussions with major strategics on contingent offtake agreements." - said BlueOcean's CEO, Douglas Kemp-Welch.

"Third party validation of commercially relevant technology is one of the key missions for AzCATI and our ATP3 program. Technology companies, like BlueOcean NutraSciences, having easy access to facilities and expertise such as those available within our ATP3 network can help accelerate innovation and commercialization of algal technologies and products." - said Dr. John McGowen, Portfolio Manager in ASU's Office of Knowledge Enterprise Development's Project Management Office and Director of Operations and Program Management for AzCATI and ATP3.
