Dutch brand Vegan ZeaStar is growing in popularity! The vegan company makes products that replicate fish, including tuna and salmon.

The company has “No Tuna,” its tuna alternative and “Zalmon,” its salmon alternative currently in distribution around the United Kingdom. The brand is a collaboration between Vegan XL and Netherlands-based restaurant chain Vegan Junk Food Bar.

So how is it made? ZeaStar’s vegan sashimi is a combination of Omega-3 oils, tapioca starch, and glucose. The product is made to be a total sushi replacement, with each piece designed to fit into a sheet of nori.

“The demand for tasty 100-percent plant-based products is growing rapidly worldwide. Reasons are diverse: health, ecological footprint, climate change which is largely attributed to the meat, fish, and dairy industry and overfishing—scientific reports are stating increasingly alarming numbers on fish stocks, implying that if fishing continues as [it does] now, oceans will be empty by 2048,” the company said in a statement, “As a distributor of plant-based products, Vegan Finest Foods can tell from its own experience that a shift is taking place in consumer habits.”

We may have grown accustomed to thinking of the oceans as a vast, unlimited reservoir of seafood and other resources, but given the increasingly imperiled state of our oceans and all of the creatures who inhabit them, this attitude needs to change. Fast. To learn more about how you can save endangered species such as the bluefin tuna and help preserve the marine environment for future generations, read up on the articles below:
