The main driver for ProChaete’s business is the desire to help stop depletion of global marine resources. As the world’s population increases, so does the need for a stable and dependable supply of seafood to help provide healthy diets worldwide. At present, many aquaculture species are fed largely on products containing fish meal from industrial fisheries. We share the concerns of many environmental groups about over-fishing, particularly of stocks which are not managed.
With limited reserves of fish meal and a rapidly increasing demand the use of an alternative protein source is needed. And farmed polychaete can provide such a source.
By using farmed worms we can contribute to an increased supply of seafood.
