Fish and seafood are the only kind of commonly consumed animal protein that are still caught in the wild. When we think about plant-based or lab-grown substitutes for animal products, most of the conversation focuses on the environment. For fish, there’s also consideration for the environment impacting the quality of the natural product, with increasing levels of heavy metals and micro plastics. Overfishing and endangered aquatic-populations are also a concern. An ocean without fish, is not an ocean. On this episode of Tech Bites, host Jennifer Leuzzi talks with Carrie Chan, CEO and Co-Founder of Avant, a cultivated meat company focusing on growing nutritious, tasty fish and functional marine proteins directly from fish cells at economically viable costs. She is part of the Bloomberg New Economy Catalysts Class of 2022.
