We are already seeing synthetic biology (“synbio”) play a role in supporting the development of durable supply chains in our food system globally, and more specifically as a platform for innovation around fishmeal and fish oil replacements, and increasing plant-based diet palatability. During this webinar, we will talk specifically about how synbio can provide the technology and tools to help aquaculture grow sustainably. Such technologies have the potential to deliver tailor-made proteins to different aquaculture species according to desired nutritional profiles. In addition to proteins, the production of aromatics (the chemical precursors to palatant technology) is an area where synbio innovations could make an impact.
The full synthetic biology technology stack has the potential to rethink entirely customizable nutrients and reduce feed and production costs for fish farmers. In this session, we welcome synbio innovators to discuss their technologies and potential for progress in fishmeal and fish oil replacement.
