Feeding Big Appetites: How Biology is Helping Ocean Conservation and Solving Aquaculture’s Biggest Problem
Over half of all seafood in the US is aquacultured. Aquaculture, farming of aquatic animals and plants, can help satiate the world's growing appetite for seafood while also protecting fragile ocean ecosystems from overfishing. But, shortages of feed ingredients like fishmeal and fish oil (FMFO) create supply chain issues that threaten the future of the industry. FMFO depletion can also result in marine wildlife collapse for animals that depend on forage fish for sustenance.

Learn how synthetic biology is playing an increasingly critical role in the future of seafood, and can address shortages with new supply. Using synbio and conventional tools, opportunities are emerging in algae, single cell proteins, and land crops that are yielding new ingredients for feed and seafood that are crucial for maintaining the availability of ⅕ of global protein.
