90% of fish stocks are (over)exploited
Nearly 90% of the world’s marine fish stocks are now fully exploited, overexploited or depleted (WRI). The current aquaculture model, which depends heavily on fish meal, is running out of steam to meet growing demand.
Therefore, the pressure is on to find sustainable, effective alternatives for fish feed. The future of our oceans, marine life, and fisheries depends on it.
“I sampled salmon fed a 50/50 mix of fishmeal and mealworm [Ynmeal] , 100% mealworm and 100% fishmeal […] 100% mealworm had the cleanest flavor. I look forward to using it in my restaurant”
