Date:3/6/2008

COLUMBIA, Md., March 6 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Martek Biosciences (Nasdaq: MATK) announced today that life'sDHA(TM), its patented, vegetarian form of DHA omega-3 for brain, eye and heart health, is now available in the new Sunkist Naturals Glorious Greens Smoothie from Sunkist licensing partner, Maverick Brands. Sunkist Naturals Glorious Greens Smoothie can now be found in the refrigerated produce case in supermarkets across the country.

"The new Sunkist Naturals smoothie with life'sDHA demonstrates how successful food and beverage brands are recognizing the unique benefits of incorporating life'sDHA into their products," said Joe Buron, vice president of marketing and sales for Martek.

Sunkist has been growing the finest fruit for 100 years through a non-profit cooperative of regional and family-owned farms. Maverick Brands creates 100 percent all-natural, better-for-you beverages for today's consumer looking to maintain a healthier lifestyle.

"Maverick sources the very best ingredients for our products, which is why we chose Martek's vegetarian and sustainable life'sDHA for the nutrient-rich Glorious Greens Smoothie," said Mark Shaw, president of Maverick Brands. "Sunkist Naturals, a line of eight healthy, all-natural, refrigerated smoothies and juices, unites flavor with unsurpassed quality for health-conscious consumers who are in search of more nourishing beverages."

DHA (docosahexaenoic acid) 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, from infants to aging adults, benefit from an adequate supply of DHA omega-3 in their diets. Scientific reviews have noted the importance of DHA omega-3 in proper brain and eye development and function, and there are large clinical studies underway to evaluate its role in decreasing the prevalence of certain neurological disorders.

Fish are often thought to be the only source of DHA omega-3. However, life'sDHA offers a trusted, vegetarian form of DHA that contains no oceanic pollutants and toxins. Fish are good sources of DHA because of the DHA-rich microalgae in their food chain; life'sDHA is derived from microalgae and produced in an FDA-inspected facility from start to finish using a sustainable source that does not deplete ocean resources. life'sDHA is found in numerous foods, beverages and supplements for people of all ages. It is also the only source of DHA used in U.S. infant formula and is available in more than 90 percent of the formulas on the U.S. market.

Martek Biosciences Corporation (Nasdaq: MATK) is a leader in the innovation and development of DHA omega-3 products that promote health and wellness through every stage of life. The company produces life'sDHA(TM), a sustainable and vegetarian source of the omega-3 fatty acid DHA (docosahexaenoic acid), for use in foods, beverages, infant formula, and supplements. The company also produces life'sARA(TM) (arachidonic acid), an omega-6 fatty acid, from a sustainable, vegetarian source, for use in infant formula.
