F3 Future of Fish Feed 2560 1707 Ocean Decade

We need innovation in aquafeed for global food security. Currently, we depend on wild-caught forage fish to produce blue foods. Yet, overfishing of these keystone species disrupts ocean ecosystems and biodiversity, causing fluctuations in the supply chain that result in availability issues and higher prices for consumers.

The proposed Decade Action encourages nutrition innovation across the supply chain to reduce reliance on keystone species as feed ingredients, promoting sustainable sources like algae instead. Innovation will be encouraged through industry-focused challenges, networking events, support for the alternative feed community via the F3 Feed Innovation Network (FIN), and sponsorship of new scientific research into alternative ingredients. This project aims to enhance global food security while reducing pressure on ocean ecosystems, conserving them for future generations.
