Turning over a new leaf

Ingredients obtained by KnipBio from specialised strains of leaf symbiont bacteria have been demonstrated to offer promising alternatives to fishmeal in aquafeeds, following a number of recent trials. Read more >>

Fishmeal substitute passes taste test

Sashimi derived from yellowtail fed a diet containing a novel fishmeal replacement has passed a consumer taste test with flying colours.
The trial was conducted by KnipBio, a Massachusetts-based biotechnology company, along with its collaborator Kampachi Farms, and involved samples of yellowtail (Seriola rivoliana) that had been fed diets containing up to 7.5% of the microbe-derived KnipBio Meal (KBM). The trial was conducted at the Food Innovation Center at Oregon State University. Read more >>

KnipBio’s Microbe Technology Creates Better Fish Feed

KnipBio, a Massachusetts-based biotechnology company, has developed a series of microbes that converts low-cost feedstocks into premium, nutritious, single-cell proteins that are an alternative to fishmeal in aquaculture. Its fermentation process yields a protein flour that is laden with immunity-boosting, pigment-enhancing carotenoids to produce healthier, more vibrant fish. Read more >>

Study finds sustainable alternative protein source for shrimp, salmon

Results from a recent study showed potential to lower aquaculture feed costs and provide a new sustainable alternative protein source.
A study showed results for the first time that a single-cell protein could replace a key ingredient in aquaculture feeds for fish and shrimp. The study looked at KnipBio Meal as a food for white shrimp, Atlantic salmon, and smallmouth grunts. Read more >>

A single celled replacement for fishmeal?

Large scale production of a single cell organism could reduce the need to use wild-caught fish and agricultural crops as the key protein ingredients in aquaculture feeds, according to a new study published in PEERJ today.
The study, entitled A Transdisciplinary Approach To The Initial Validation Of A Single Cell Protein As An Alternative Protein Source For Use In Aquafeeds, is the result of a collaboration between researchers at a Massachusetts-based biotechnology company – KnipBio, Inc – the New England […]
