According to the UN’s Food and Agriculture Organization, 90% of the global fish population is fully fished, overfished, or in crisis. At the New Food Conference, which takes place on 10-11 October in Cologne, Dr Sebastian Rakers from Bluu Biosciences will talk about why cultured fish is a viable alternative.

Stocks are declining or they are exploited to their maximum. Aquaculture is trying to catch up, but it has its own limitations and challenges. Therefore, cultured fish provides a viable alternative to overfishing our oceans.
We plan to have our first prototypes ready by 2022.”

The first products that reach market readiness will be unstructured – think fish balls, fish tartar, or even fish sticks. Later on, we envision […]
In the full interview, published in Vegconomist, Dr Rakers talks about consumer acceptance and the regulatory approval of cultured fish, as well as the opportunities for traditional fish producers.
