Will Lab Grown Fish Save Oceans?

155 ratings | 8366 views
More and more investors are betting that one day, the fish on your plate will come from stem cells grown in bioreactors, instead of the ocean. Scientists say lab-grown fish could reduce overfishing and feed the world's growing demand for seafood. A handful of cultured seafood start-ups are blazing a new trail in cell biology, since growing fish tissue in the lab is uncharted territory. » Subscribe to CNBC: http://cnb.cx/SubscribeCNBC About CNBC: From 'Wall Street' to 'Main Street' to award winning original documentaries and Reality TV series, CNBC has you covered.

Pollute the air land and sea with man made chemicals, create unatural chemically enhanced flavoured frankinfood. Prosecute people who want to grow natural healthy food. Backwards corrupt madness in amerikkka.

I don't mind eating meat from a lab

Next human meat grown in lab ;)

But what about nutrition? The worry is that to feed the population we create foods that don't provide proper nutrition. Nutrition science itself is already always changing its mind, to replace real food with lab grown stem cells we really need a longer observation period on how it affects human bodies

Farming fish is much better. This will never be cost effective.

Y'all are some weirdos. If the government would allow us to grow our own food instead of allowing buisnesses to control supply we wouldn't have this problem

I don't know. What about aquaponics? I'll take the real thing.
derty QWERTY (13 days ago)
This is NOT needed.. people need to learn about aquaponics.. anyone with a brain can grow their own fish and veggies in an aquaponic system.. it is the future not this lab made meat junk...
Richo Rian (2 days ago)
+Brian Kim he say about aquaponics (Fresh or Tap water)
Brian Kim (12 days ago)
Yeah. Go ahead and try growing Tuna in your backyard. Lets see how that works out.

You mean anyone with a brain, space, equipment and time?
Dark PePe (13 days ago)
Nope, but nuking Japan again will save the oceans
Jarid Gaming (13 days ago)
So there will be more Fish in the Ocean to Fish for for non commercial people. I'm happy with that I can go Fishing and have a better chance of getting bites

Scheme sounds fishy. Sounds less about food, more about priming public opinion on stem cell engineering

Bandages are always more profitable than cures.
Tell ya what I'll invest heavily if it makes it!

Large fish (tuna, swordfish) without all the mercury? Sounds great to me.
Ramin Ahmadyar (12 days ago)
Patrick not only that but raw sushi will no longer have worry of parasites

this is how we can cope up with the growing population.
MatuschkaRossija (12 days ago)
Or we provide people in Asia and Africa with condoms or castrate them. This two options are much sheaper.

ZCM Trading lol Americans can make stuff easily...the problem are the consumers. Most people always want to spend as little as they can on stuff.
