Omega Protein is a nutritional ingredient company and the nation's leading vertically integrated producer of omega-3 fish oil and specialty fish meal products. Omega Protein develops, produces and delivers nutritional ingredients throughout the world to three primary industries— human nutrition, animal nutrition, and plant nutrition. Founded in 1913 as a commercial fishing operation, Omega Protein's legacy business allowed the Company to become one of the world's leading producers of fish oil and the largest manufacture of fish meal in the United States.

Omega Protein originated with the Haynie family, some of the first Europeans to settle among the native inhabitants of Virginia's Northern Neck in the 1840s. Our 130-year history began in 1878, when John A. Haynie and his younger brother, Thomas, established a primitive fish processing operation on family property in Reedville, Virginia, today the site of Omega Protein's largest plant and refinery.

Through a series of mergers, the business became Reedville Oil and Guano Company in 1913. The menhaden fishing industry evolved from a primitive operation in the early 1800s to embrace the use of spotter pilots in 1947 and hydraulic power blocks in 1956. Modernization and technology allowed for the expansion of our fishing operations to include the Gulf of Mexico in 1966, when we developed processing facilities along the coast of Louisiana and Mississippi.

In 1968, the company was renamed Haynie Products, Inc., and in 1970, we merged with Zapata Oil to form Zapata Haynie Corporation. In 1994, Zapata was renamed Zapata Protein; with the change to Omega Protein following eight years later.

Omega Protein is headquartered in Houston, TX.
