A new and exciting alternative to fish is quickly growing in popularity, making way for the lab-grown fish to hit the markets as well.

With more and more people becoming aware of the dangers of the fishing industry on the environment and marine life, people are searching for alternatives. Thus, more companies are making the leap to fish alternatives.

Everyone’s first instinct when hearing about climate change is to reduce red meat consumption, but experts say that the fishing industry can have just as negative of an effect on the planet as livestock.

The market of plant-based seafood has been slow-growing, but companies like Good Catch and others have been getting more and more funding from investors as people are starting to recognize the benefit of plant-based fish alternatives.

The idea of lab-grown fish is a far-off dream for many plant-based companies. However, as the demand for an alternative to fish grows, that possibility grows as well.

The large variety of marine animals ad their different structures increase the difficulty of creating fish in a lab. However, the possibility of creating lab-grown fish is not far off.

As the market for plant-based fish slowly grows in popularity, it will make way for a more sustainable way of enjoying seafood.
