“We’ve moved past needing to kill animals and ruin the environment for food; we can do much better with the technology that we have.”
“Money is being poured into creating efficient aquaculture systems, to grow fish in tanks on land for human consumption. While this is a move in the right direction, if we’re going to make this system as efficient as possible we need to rethink things from the bottom up.”
"More and more companies are beginning to produce meat in labs as a way to combat such issues as greenhouse gases emissions, overfishing and animal welfare concerns."
"Finless Foods, an early-stage startup that lays out its mission in its curious name. They aim to reverse engineer, prototype, and grow fish meat and products."
"Some biotech companies are scrambling to find a solution to overfishing. Here's a look at some algae-based shrimp and fish fillets grown from stem cells."
"is working toward production of blue fin tuna. Co-founder Michael Selden told Agri-Pulse he hopes his company can sell its first tuna meat in three years if regulatory hurdles can be cleared, and he thinks the first product will be something like surimi (imitation crab sticks)."
"You may have heard the ocean is running out of fish. Thankfully, Michael Selden and Brian Wyrwas, the biochemists behind San Francisco-based Finless Foods, have a plan to keep fish on the menu — and in the ocean."
"Mike Selden is the co-founder of Finless Foods and he's planning to have his fish on the market in three years. He says his product is actually better for you than a lot of what's available now."
"Imagine a food revolution that could end factory farming. Feed the world for pennies on the dollar. And dramatically cut greenhouse gas emissions. All it requires is ending meat as we know it."
"Michael Selden and Brian Wyrwas are using stem cells from living fish to make fish meat. They say, with over half the world’s fish stocks exhausted, and demand increasing, solutions like theirs are vital."
"The cellular meat production industry has taken to the proverbial seas with Finless Foods, a new biotechnology company angling to grow fish meat from stem cells thereby taking the fishing out of, well, fish."
"Early-stage startup Finless Foods is developing slaughter-free fish filets using established bioengineering and cell-culturing methods. The company will use a small amount of fish cells to produce “clean meat”—also referred to as “cultured meat”—in a lab setting."
"By creating lab-grown fish, Finless Foods is developing an economical, environmentally friendly and considerate alternative to seafood that is farmed commercially. As well as leaving the fish in the ocean undisturbed by eating this lab-grown fish, consumers will appreciate knowing that the cultured meat from Finless Foods will not contain any mercury."
"The current goal of Finless Foods: to produce a simulacrum of bluefin tuna fillet to help relieve the pressure on the prized, but severely overfished, species."
"So far there have been plenty of vegetarian and vegan replacements, from companies like Gardein and Sophie’s Kitchen, but very little real work done in cellular agriculture."
"...the company whose mission is to develop and mass manufacture marine animal products for human consumption using fish stem cells to produce fish meat without the fish."
