This invention provides a particulate material suitable for use as a nutritional supplement, particularly as an aquaculture feed. The particulate material has a high proportion of DHA residues in the lipid fraction, which may be up to 35% of the material, or even more. Preferably, the material has a mean particle size of from about 5 microns to about 10 microns. This invention also provides a method for preparing a particulate material suitable for use as an aquaculture feed from microbial biomass, preferably from algal cells having a high content of DHA residues, by obtaining a lipid fraction from the biomass, preferably by solvent extraction of broken cells, followed by separating a fraction containing phospholipids and proteins from the lipid fraction, and removing water from the protein/phospholipid fraction to form a low moisture particulate, preferably by spray-drying the protein/phospholipid fraction.
