With the increase of population and expansion of middle-class income, the world is facing a “protein crisis”, where the demand of protein will exceed its supply in the near future. Regional Fish Institute aims to solve this problem by improving the productivity and value of aquatic products by applying our “high-speed breeding” to aquaculture. While traditional breeding method usually takes about 30 years to establish one breed, our technology can do this in only 2-3 years. With our distinctive core technology on hand, we hope to contribute to upgrading the aquaculture industry by providing new breeds of fish seeds that meet the needs of consumers and aquafarmers.
