Algdeha provides sustainable biotechnology solutions to the industries depending on fish based products.
Because of global warming, contaminations in the oceans and over fishing activities, it is estimated that wild fish will be extinct before 2050. The industries depending on fish meal and oil need an immediate sustainable solution to replace fish. We develop sustainable production methods to produce algae in industrial scale with low cost to use as animal feed to for replacing animal based products.
Our innovative production methods allow us to produce algae with lower costs by using wave energy, sunlight, heat from environment.
Global aquaculture production has increased by 228% since 2018.
50% of total global seafood supply are produced in aquatic farms.
20% of the wild caught fish are used as fish feed for aquaculture.
Unless there is a sustainable shift from fish based products, 90% of the fish species will be extinct in following 30 years.
