NutraMara - the Marine Functional Foods Research Initiative - is a programme for marine based functional food development, which aims to mine marine bioresources including seaweeds (macroalgae), microalgae and marine processing by-products as well as aquaculture, for functional food ingredients that may benefit human health.

NutraMara is a key strategic initiative within the broad Irish National Marine Biotechnology Programme. Established as an all-Ireland, multidisciplinary research consortium, NutraMara focuses on developing scientific knowledge, capabilities and processes to assess and evaluate the potential of marine-origin bioactive compounds as components in functional foods and as food ingredients.
