A US startup pioneering a technique of producing lab-grown seafood products has attracted the attention of investors.
BlueNalu of San Diego, California, is in the business of cellular agriculture, which is the creation – in the laboratory – of animal products such as meat, milk, and eggs from cell and tissue cultures. In BlueNalu’s case, seafood will be grown directly from fish cells.
The company says its cellular aquaculture process will provide the industry with a more sustainable way of producing seafood. The two-month-old company has attracted $4.5 million in seed funding.
Lab-grown seafood, anyone?
