Description

Thin sheets of cultivated fish for layering on the outside of maki rolls could be an attractive market-entry commercial product. Producing thin sheets of tissue is more technically straightforward than thicker muscle cuts, and this product category commands high price points. Cultivated production presents particularly strong food safety advantages for seafood products that are consumed raw, which may contribute to high consumer receptivity. The product could also incorporate cells from several fish species as a modern take on the rainbow roll.
