Other advantages of cultivated fish, it says, include its high nutritional value, the absence of pollutants, its availability even in places without access to the sea and the associated short supply chains.
It claims the production process is resource-friendly and has a significantly lower CO2 footprint as well as water and energy consumption compared to the conventional fish processing industry.
“Fish is among the world’s most widely consumed sources of protein. But while demand is increasing as the world’s population grows, stocks are declining due to overfishing and environmental pollution,” he said. “Aquaculture is not a sustainable solution for the mass market and only another way of mass breeding of animals. Therefore, cell-based fish is a logical answer. Also, cell-based fish has its advantages compared to cell-based meat: it can be produced at lower temperatures and is less complex in structure.”
