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!
