Global food security is a long-term, looming crisis. The world will require a 70% increase in total food production by 2050 as the population is expected to reach 9 billion. Natural resources are constrained and consumption is intensifying as the standard of living in developing nations continues to rise. As demand grows, over-fishing and environmental concerns are on the rise for our oceans.
Aquaculture is one of the most effective ways to feed the world’s growing population and is also one of the fastest growing industries on the planet. Today, aquaculture produces more protein annually worldwide than cattle. Raising fish on farms combats overexploitation of fish caught in the wild allowing fish to reproduce naturally.
This “Blue Revolution” is not without problems however. Due to the over-harvesting of wild fish reduced to fishmeal, aquaculture often turns to alternatives that are less than adequate nutritionally.
KnipBio’s unique source of protein combines the attributes of natural fishmeal with environmental stewardship to produce a clean, effective, sustainable alternative - at a significantly lower cost.
Better, cleaner feed can lead to better, cleaner aquaculture which in turn can lead to healthier humans and oceans.
