1. A process for producing oil containing eicosapentaenoic acid, docosapentaenoic acid and docosahexaenoic acid, comprising the steps of obtaining a transgenic seed of an oilseed plant which comprises eicosapentaenoic acid, docosapentaenoic acid and docosahexaenoic acid in an esterified form as part of triglycerides, wherein the total fatty acid of the transgenic seed comprises at least 2.5% ω

  • 3 C20 fatty acids (w/w) and wherein the docosapentaenoic acid is present at a level based on a conversion ratio of eicosapentaenoic acid to docosapentaenoic acid of at least 5% (w/w), and extracting oil from the transgenic seed so as to thereby produce the oil.
