Feedvax is developing an innovative oral vaccine platform that simplifies production, eliminates fish stress and enhances sustainability. Feedvax revolutionizes animal production from the inside and hacks classic production processes to drive truly sustainable impact by removing antibiotics and injectable vaccine from the production chain. The first vaccine is against streptococcus in tilapia.
Currently, infectious diseases cause loss of enough fish to feed 90 million people. To combat infectious diseases, the industry uses antibiotics that becomes persistent in the food chain and/or injectable vaccines that require impractical handling and additional costs.
Genufeed is developing a cost-effective insect-based fish feed production process that generates 100% fishmeal and fish oil free aquafeed. This sustainable insect enrichment process utilizes locally produced insect larvae to be fed whole or chopped to the fish, reducing processing and costs while enhancing the local economy. Genufeed’s proprietary coating adds the exact combination of fatty acids, amino acids, vitamins and minerals that the fish need. The technology is modular, simple and designed to enhance aquaculture production, especially in developing markets.
Jala is developing an innovative integration of their shrimp data platforms to include farm management predictive analytics and actionable insights, field assistance, credit, insurance, and a trading platform all allowing improved farm economics and end-to-end traceability for producer communities and buyers.
Salmokine is developing an innovative platform based on the production of proteins from the fish immune system. These recombinant proteins are capable of modulating immunity and prompting the expression of antimicrobial peptides, providing protection against several pathogens without causing an exacerbated inflammatory reaction. This technology can be applied to complement vaccines or as feed supplement, reducing the use of antibiotics.
Seawater Solutions is developing an innovative integration of aquaculture and wetland agriculture to create a circular economy farming system producing a wide range of products from shrimp & finfish, to salt-tolerant vegetables, sustainable fish feed, carbon credits, oils and minerals, and agro-forestry products. This technology enhances local economic viability and environmental remediation to the one third of the world lands affected by climate threats such as salinization and coastal erosion.
TeOra has developed proprietary technology platforms for natural, sustainable solutions to prevent disease and promote growth in shrimp. These solutions, designed using synthetic biology and encapsulation technology, address $300 billion in losses due to disease and overuse of pesticides and antibiotics. The technology platform can rapidly design low-cost growth enhancement and oral disease prevention solutions for aquaculture, by producing specific proprietary small proteins using precision fermentation of yeast.
Wittaya Aqua is developing innovative software platforms based on advanced modeling that will enable seamless collaboration throughout the global aquaculture supply chain. Once integrated, these tools will be able predict farm and feed productivity, efficiency, and economics as well as key sustainability metrics such as waste outputs, carbon footprint, and FIFO ratios. The platforms will also be able to benchmark ingredient, feed, and animal performance, enabling continuous improvement to aquaculture operations, providing insights to multiple stakeholders, species and geographies.
Xylome is developing a platform that allows the production of a sustainable and price competitive salmon feed from by-products of ethanol plants using a special fermentation of metabolic engineered and heat treated nonconventional yeast. The lipid, protein and pigment profile of the Xylome feed is similar to commercial fish feed without the use of fish meal or fish oil. This sustainable development program and process is circular by design, thus allowing the reutilization of raw materials and by-products.
