Sensible and carefully considered regulation of cultivated seafood will be essential to creating a sustainable, secure, and just food system.
Support from governments, academia, and nonprofits will help ensure cultivated seafood reaches its full potential to sustainably meet the global demand for seafood and restore the health of our oceans.
The World Sustainability Organization, in partnership with GFI's Sustainable Seafood Initiative, announced it will begin certifying plant-based seafood products under their Friend of the Sea certification program.
GFI has awarded a two-year grant to a research project aimed at developing a high-quality, serum-free fish cell culture media—a critical step to bring cultivated seafood to market.
U.S. sales data shows that plant-based meat sales have remained strong amid Covid-19, outperforming both its prior-year growth as well as animal-based meat's growth rates.
There's a lot of research on the cellular and molecular components needed to match conventional seafood's taste, texture, and aroma. We've put together a resource to help alternative seafood researchers and companies navigate it.
Public investment in alternative seafood has the potential to make America a leader in seafood production with vast positive impacts for the economy, workers, human health, and ocean sustainability.
Cultivated meat is poised to make our food system more sustainable, ethical, and delicious, but cell lines are a critical unmet need. That's why GFI is funding research by Kyle Fish of Tufts University to isolate lines from Atlantic salmon. The cells will be available to researchers and companies via Kerafast.
One fish, two fish, redfish, shrimp! By working with a major company and funding a research project at a nonprofit marine research organization, GFI's Sustainable Seafood Initiative is helping researchers develop better ways to feed the world.
To feed a growing global population safe and nutritious seafood for generations to come, we need to think outside of the box. BlueNalu's partnership with legacy seafood industry player Nutreco demonstrates how we can quickly and sustainably advance the plant-based and cultivated seafood industries.
