Date:7/17/2009

COLUMBIA, Md., July 17 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- DHA omega-3 innovator and maker of the life'sDHA(TM) brand of DHA, Martek Biosciences (Nasdaq: MATK), announced today that it has received a unanimous positive vote from the Standing Committee On The Food Chain and Animal Health (SCFCAH) of the European Union for additional novel food approval of life'sDHA in Europe.

This is a significant action that will provide for new uses of Martek's DHA-rich algal oil in bakery products, cereal bars, and beverages, including milk-based and milk analogue drinks, throughout the 27 Member States of the European Union. This expands the current categories approved in 2003 which include breakfast cereals, spreadable fat and dressings, dairy products (excluding milk-based and milk analogue drinks) and food supplements.

The July 15, 2009 draft Commission decision will now pass into the formal procedure before anticipated publication in the Official Journal of the European Union in the coming months.

DHA omega-3 is a long-chain omega-3 fatty acid that serves as a primary building block for the brain and the eyes and supports brain, eye and cardiovascular health throughout life. There is a large and growing body of scientific evidence demonstrating that people of all ages benefit from an adequa
