Aquaculture’s $100bn Feed Challenge Presents Big Opportunity for Entrepreneurs – AgFunderNews

The search is on for a sustainable alternative to the 30 million tons of wild caught fish that are currently used to feed farmed fish.It’s a $100 billion challenge that’s attracting innovators and investors alike because the aquaculture industry actually needs to find 300 million tons a year of extra fish feed by the end of the century to meet demand.These innovators and investors are driven by the prospect of helping offset the threat of a future global food and water crisis without creating other problems in the process.

Mike Velings, co-founder of the Dutch sustainable aquaculture fund, Aqua-Spark is calling this the Blue Revolution; think how agriculture was before the green revolution and that’s where aquaculture is today.
