Future of Fish Feed (F3) is a collaborative effort between NGOs, researchers, and private partnerships to accelerate the commercialization of innovative, alternative aquaculture feed ingredients to replace wild-caught fish. Past feeds have relied on wild-caught fish, which is unsustainable since wild caught stocks are declining.
The F3 Team:
2. Held a meeting in the San Francisco Bay Area in Jan 2017 to facilitate networking between the contestants of Fish-Free Feeds and large feed companies. Discussions at this meeting prompted the development of our Feed Innovation Network, which encourages sustainable innovations in fish-free aquaculture feed ingredients by sharing experimental protocols, and directing ingredient companies to test facilities that can implement these protocols.
3. Launched the F3 Fish Oil Challenge.
