Thank you for your support and input on the Feeding the Next Billion Prize Design so far! Having mapped and discussed the key issues in the alternative meat space, we are now ready to start sketching out what this XPRIZE might look like.

In order to ensure that we set audacious but achievable goals for the teams that will compete in the prize competition, we need to establish metrics for existing (alternative) meat production.

Environmental Metrics (Fish)

In order to ensure that we set audacious but achievable goals in this prize competition, we need to both establish a baseline for conventional fish production and know how plant- and cell-based fish alternatives are currently performing.

As you can see in the chart below, there are a number of gaps (the red dots) in our research, which we hope the community can fill in.


For alternatives, we're missing the following environmental metrics:
  • The impact on deforestation of conventional fish, both farm raised and wild caught.
  • The impact on greenhouse gas emissions (CHG), deforestation, water use, water pollution and energy for plant-based fish alternatives.
  • The impact on water pollution for cell-based fish alternatives.

We'd appreciate any guidance you can provide in order to help us establish these metrics!
