Sundew ApS

Sundew ApS is a Danish venture focused on combating aquatic pests, diseases and invasive species using advanced biological approaches. Modern biology offers the capability to provide effective, affordable and environmentally benign solutions to the multiple pest, disease and ecological problems afflicting the world’s oceans, seas, lakes and rivers.

Sundew is building a portfolio of products based on two technology platforms:

  • Natural ingredients and aquatic beneficial organisms. Sundew’s most advanced product from this platform works against several protozoan parasites. One of the most important is Ich, a parasitic disease caused by the protozoan Ichthyophthirius multifiliis (and otherwise known as fish white spot disease). It is a major disease of freshwater fish, including such species as koi, rainbow trout, young salmon, catfish and carp.
  • Algal RNA technologies. This will both protect aquaculture species against disease, and target aquatic invasive species. RNA is becoming increasingly important as a treatment in human therapeutics and vaccines but requires specific delivery mechanisms for use in aquatic environments. Since algae are a major component of many aquatic species’ diets, they have many advantages when use in this way.

Both platforms use fermentation as their production technology. More info at
