Finless Foods is a biotechnology company founded in March 2017 and is located in San Francisco, California. The company produces cultured in-vitro marine animal food products through combining cellular agriculture and manufacturing technologies. Seafood products produced by Finless Foods are not wild caught, or fish farmed. Their; productsthey are grown from living cells extracted from a marinerice animalgrain-sized ofbiopsy choicefrom fish meat. The extracted living cells put into a supportive growth environment that includes a nutrient-rich serum, and grown to resemble a particular shape such as a fish fillet. TheOnly companyanimal claimsbyproducts are used in making the serum. On a cellular level, their products are real seafood; the challenge is to create a product that their products looklooks, tastetastes, and feelfeels like real seafood — on a cellular level their products are real seafoodfish.

One important step in the developmental process is creating a cell line that is "immortalized," meaning that it can grow forever and a fish will not need to be sampled again to continue production.

Company-stated benefits of cell-based fish:

  • Cuts down on overfishing
  • No mercury, unlike fish in the wild that have mercury due to bioaccumulation
  • No microplastics, which can be found in ocean-caught seafood
  • Lower carbon footprint
  • Can be grown far from where wild tuna are found, thereby reducing the need for transportation and the environmental impact of fishing fleets
