The world is running out of fish
Climate change, pandemics, food security, and animal welfare - they all tie in to our broken food system. Seafood is the most widely-eaten animal protein in the world. 178M metric tons per year are harvested through fishing and aquaculture. Because of this extraordinary demand, approximately 50% of the world’s fisheries are currently fished at unsustainable levels as demand increases and climate change accelerates the collapse of our oceans’ ecosystem. Our current trajectory, even with aquaculture, is not sustainable.
Atlantic Fish Co is developing cultivated seafood to provide the world delicious and sustainable protein. Our vision is a future that's better for people, animals, and the planet. Cultivated meat and seafood technology make this possible. Cells are harvested from the fish and fed nutrients in a bioreactor. Scaffolding is used to give the cells a structure to grow on and produce the texture of a whole fish fillet. The end product is REAL seafood, grown directly from fish cells but without the consequences of legacy fishing.
