Aquaculture Business

Research Target:

Enterprises in the business of smart aquaculture, land-based aquaculture, aquaponics, low fish meal feed

Research Content:

The global food situation has become unstable due to increasing population worldwide. For marine products, consumption per capita in Japan is decreasing, but annual consumption per person worldwide has doubled from fifty years ago.
Fish meal, the main ingredient of mixed feed for fish, is overall dependent on import, but the imported price has been soaring due to increased global demand. In such a situation, smart aquaculture that is IoT-used efficient aquaculture, land-based aquaculture using closed-loop system, and low fish meal feed with fish meal reduced, are attracting attention. The research also mentions about the development trend and direction of breeding technology that utilizes genome-editing.
By researching and analyzing the market players of smart aquaculture, land-based aquaculture, low fish meal feed, and seeds and seedlings, this report discloses the market statuses and challenges, while gropes for the future directions.
