Reducing Aquaculture's Environmental Footprint

Calysta’s natural microorganisms produce FeedKind protein via fermentation as an alternative aquaculture feed. The product has a high nutrient density, with 71% crude protein and 9% crude fat, outperforming other protein ingredients in animal trials for growth rates. It has also been shown to use 77% to 98% less water than alternative ingredients, including soy and wheat proteins, and requires no agricultural land to produce. The company estimates that if one commercial scale FeedKind protein plant replaced soy products for fish feed, it could free up enough land to feed 250,000 people.
